Fisher House Bake Sale Was A Success
With a total team effort in support of Fisher House — the houses that provide a welcoming place for families experiencing the stress of a member’s hospitalization at Travis AFB — the spring Bake Sale was a financial success, raising almost $2,500. But even more, it was a generous outpouring by resident bakers, staff teams of bakers, and clients who purchased treats of culinary delight that made it a real success.
As part of the PVE-Fisher House Golf Tournament, sponsored by PVE Marketing and the PVE residents’ golf club and golf committee, the Bake Sale was a coordinated effort. For the past three years, the Passionate Bakers (who are a baker’s dozen of PVE residents who meet monthly for a sampling of delicious creativity) have supported the Fisher House Golf Tournament by holding a bake sale.
In addition to the contributions of enormous peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies (a favorite of the buyers), packages of various other cookies, boxes of cupcakes, mini-loaves of bread, biscotti, breakfast muffins and other specialty items went into the bags of shoppers.
On-hand to help with the sale were Passionate Bakers Estelle Holoway, Phyllis Riley, LaVerne Suder, Carole Morgan, Janie Tschudy and Liz Wildberger. PVE’s Dining Services donated doilies, tiered display racks, silver-like trays and the popcorn machine.
With so many teams of contributors, bakers and volunteers, the annual Fisher House Bake Sale will provide funding to help the Travis Fisher House continue to provide its help to the families of hospitalized military members and veterans in need.
