Cupcake Wars fundraiser for library set Saturday


Browser, the library cat, here for an announcement about food!

The Pine River Public Library’s first Cupcake Wars. Of all the fundraisers we’ve had over the years that I have lived at our library, this is the one I like the best. The money, by the way, will be used for computer updates. Everybody likes that, even me!

This event will take place at The Warehouse on Saturday, Aug. 3.

There are 13 teams signed up. Each team will bring cupcakes. Oh, boy!

Tickets are 25 cents and may be purchased at the door. Tickets are used as votes for your favorite cupcakes. Your votes should be based on best display and cupcake taste. Yup, you get to taste.

The judging will be from 11 a.m. to noon. And guess what?! After the judging the cupcakes can be purchased. Those prices will be set by the contestants.

The winner will hold the title of cupcake champion for one year.

Save me one, please. I love cupcakes.
