Two winners tie at the Pie Party
The results are in! The 11th Annual Pie Party proceeds will be shared by the two winning organizations, El Group Youth Cycling and Tucson Village Farm who each received 175 votes, congratulations! Your pie eating and baking enthusiasm raised a total of $845.86!
We were pleased with the turnout and know what to expect next year. More pies! We know there is always a level of surprise hosting a potluck and this year’s mere
70 pies were gone by 4:15 pm! While the pies were few, they were delicious. People enjoyed the Tropical Mai Pie, the Vegan Mango Madness, Spanish Tortilla and the Cornmeal Apricot. Next year we will promote the party with more advance notice, will roll out some incentives for bakers to get baking pies (possibly a contest) and will hold classes at the Food Conspiracy Co-op on how to make pie crusts.
Thank you to all of the bakers, servers, the pie eaters and the organizations. Visit our facebook page to view photos of this year’s party or look for them in the July/Augustedition of the Co-op’s Community News.
See you next year!
