Bake sale fo Haiti at MLK festival

If you are local to Austin, you should definitely head over to the Martin Luther King festival at Huston- Tillotson today, that follows the community March.

The MLK Community March kicks off at 9 a.m. with a short program at the MLK Statue on the University of Texas campus. We will then march to the Capitol for a brief program. Thereafter, we will march to the historic Huston-Tillotson University, where exciting activities are planned. The Heritage Council is planning a Cultural Festival which will begin after the March and last until 2 p.m.; it will include all types of vendors and local musical artists to make this year’s celebration the best ever!( from The Austin Area Heritage Council’s website)

A good gal pal and her pretty daisy scouts are manning a baked goods booth for Haiti at the festival with 100% of the proceeds going to the Haiti earthquake relief through the American red cross. They will be there until all the tasty goods are gone.
I made some raisin scones and pumpkin zucchini muffins. If your local maybe me and burger will see you there !
The Bake sale was a huge success . The ladies and lasses raised over $2000 for the American Red cross Haiti relief fund!!! Thanks so much to everyone who came out and donated!
