Fundraisers

Bake Me Home Boutique

Each April our Bake Me Home Boutique is held at Coldstream Country Club in Anderson Township.  Approximately 20 vendors sell their wares, and in return provide Bake Me Home 15-50% of their evening proceeds.  In addition, each vendor donates an item to our raffle.  Our Boutique Team also seeks out silent auction items from around the Greater Cincinnati community.  If you or your business has an item you would like to donate, please contact us at boutique@bakemehome.com.  

Our 7th Annual Boutique will be held on April 18, 2015 from 4-9pm.  NOTE: We will be booking vendors for this event in the fall of 2013.  Vendors who would like to be considered for an invitation for our 2015 Boutique should send an email to us at boutique@bakemehome.org.

Look for us on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at the Cincinnati Chocolate Festival at The Cintas Center.  We will have tons of FREE cookie samples for guests, and jars of our of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix available for a $20 donation.

MWPC Alternative Gift Fair

Each November the Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church hosts an Alternative Gift Fair for approximately 10-15 local and international non-profit organizations.  This event provides us the opportunity to share information about our mission with the community and receive donations. As a thank you for a $20 donation we give these donors a gift of one of our jars of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix.  We also have “A donation has been made in your honor” gift enclosure cards available.  Many people find our jars of cookie mix are the perfect holiday hostess, teacher, or co-worker gifts!
