Mark Your Calendars, Monday May 2nd for the Online Bake Sale

I'm so excited!!  The Online Bake Sale is just Two weeks from today!  Are you ready? Are you on the list of bakers?  If not, sign up and join the fun. Together we can make the Bake Sale a success.
Here are the official rules of the Online Bake Sale Bidding and how it works:

Online Bake Sale Rules and Procedures:
Please remember that all donations from this bake sale will go directly to my  Relay for Life efforts to benefit the American Cancer  Society. You will be supporting a great cause and helping to make a huge difference in the lives of many to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays!
On Monday, May 2nd,  I will post all of the items each baker has donated. Each item will have a minimum bid of $15. Once the items are officially posted all buyers (bidders) will then e-mail me at with a bid of what they would like to purchase. 

To have an official bid on an item, you must e-mail me at Any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed, only bids e-mailed will be considered official and affirmative. 

Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until 9pm EST to submit their bid for the auction.
I will be updating the current bids at the bottom of the bake sale post throughout the day so that you can see the current high bid. I am hoping this will encourage others to bid higher for the items they really want or bid for items that have not had a bid yet. Let the bidding wars begin!
All winners will be announced a few hours after the bake sale has closed

Each winner will then donate the specified amount to my Relay for Life Donation Page. Once the donation goes through, I will e-mail the baker the winner’s address and it will be the baker’s responsibility to send the baked goods to the winner within 72 hours of notification.

The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.
A preview of the goodies will be posted on Sunday, May 1st, so that you have time to look over your options and get ready to bid on your must-have items. 

Please remember that this bake sale is to help raise money for Relay for Life which goes directly to the American Cancer Society.
