1st Annual Sweet Tooth Gala & Silent Auction

Normally I wouldn't be promoting anything that's main event is sugar-filled desserts. But I have to make an exception in this case. The Sweet Tooth Gala is fundraiser to support Hole In The Roof ministries, which is located here in St. Louis. They provide a variety of important services to the needy in our area, including a food pantry.

On Oct. 2, at 6:30 pm they will start with a silent auction, which features some really great stuff. So far I've heard mention of Laser Teeth Whitening, Autographed St. Louis Rams mini-helmet, scuba diving, stained glass art, and much more. I'm also very proud to announce that one of my photos will be up for auction as well. I'm honored that my work will be among such great items and will benefit such a great cause!

No, I'm not gonna make you wait to see what I'm donating. Here is the finished product, ready for delivery to the auction. (I signed the photo as well in the lower right hand corner)

I really hope it does well for them.

At 7 p.m. they will open the Dessert Buffet, which will feature desserts from some of the city's best restaurants. It's free and open to ages 13 and up, so if you are in the area, I urge you to come and check it out! (I won't urge you to eat though.. lol) I would have loved it had they chosen something other than desserts to share. But they didn't ask for my input. :-)

Will I be going? Probably not. I don't think hubby or I would enjoy being around all the sweets and not try something. They are still a bit of a weakness for us both if we don't have lc desserts on hand. The other reason? I'd be mortified if my photo does poorly and I was there to witness it. I'd rather find out after the fact. I know.. that's negative thinking. Actually, it's the thinking of someone who isn't yet secure in her abilities. But I'll get there.

Well maybe you can get lucky and there will be fruit or low carb cheesecake

Oh how I wish iportion! But I'd be very shocked to find low-carb/sugar-free anything there. It's just not popular to eat healty desserts... yet. ;0)
