Saturday was the Annual Pasta-Sauce Off Competition hosted by the Cooking for Cancer Club in our area. This club was created by two young girls in my daughter’s class to raise funds for children with cancer. It benefits Carly’s Club of Roswell Park.
The event consists of volunteers making a pasta sauce and entering a competition. Visitors purchase sample tickets and can sample all of the sauces and vote for their favorite sauce. There is a huge basket raffle (94 baskets), a silent auction with some very unique treasures, a bake sale, 50/50 raffle, and all of the proceeds raised are donated to help make sick children’s lives a little bit better! This event raised $5,000.00!!!! Such a huge accomplishment for these girls!
This year I wanted to make a different sauce and decided on a Creamy Basil Tomato Sauce. And guess what…I won again!!
Back to back victories 🙂
It is a lot of fun but even more so knowing you are doing something that will hopefully brighten someones day who may so desperately need it.
Here is the link to my Facebook page which has the recipe for you to try and a few pictures from the event! The sauce is delicious and helped me top 13 other entries 🙂
