Sacramento Self-Help Housing, a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of homelessness in our region, holds an Annual “Let Them Eat Cake” event in celebration of Bastille Day. Each year, the “Let Them Eat Cake” fundraising event is scheduled on or near Bastille Day (note that Marie Antoinette is credited with coining the memorable “Let Them Eat Cake” phrase shortly before the French Revolution). The fundraising event supports Sacramento Self-Help Housing and their efforts to identify positive solutions and workable alternatives for local community members dealing with homelessness or trying to break free from a cycle of unstable living situations.
Of course, cake viewing and sampling is central to this festive event. Interested guests are invited to submit their own home-made creations in a spirited and fun cake contest for a chance to win great prizes. Advance entry information is suggested but not required to participate and guests can show up to the event with a cake to be added to the fun competition (note admission cost is waived for those who enter a cake in the competition). Cakes will be judged in three categories: Best Tasting, Most Creative, and Most Beautiful. Celebrity judges in past years have included Mark S. Allen, ABC10’s award-winning TV personality and movie enthusiast and Phoebe Verkouw, Marketing Manager for Sacramento magazine.
