Buy a cake and help a student

Help yourself to some of the greatest cakes in the Sacramento region while helping deserving young people in the region realize their dreams of a college education.

The Sacramento State Alumni Center will host the annual Great Cake Walk from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, May 8. The event is a fundraiser for Closing the Gap (closingthegapusa.org/), an organization that screens and funds programs to close the academic achievement gap in the Sacramento region.

The event is a jazzed-up version of the old-fashioned cake walks everyone remembers from elementary school fairs and open houses. Guests sample gourmet cakes made and custom-decorated by top bakeries in the area. They then will have a chance to win a cake during one of several cake walks held throughout the evening.

Participating bakeries include Above & Beyond, Brita’s Confections, Cake Castle and Nothing Bundt Cakes.

Emcees will be former News10 reporter and anchor Dana Howard and Sac State master’s student Curtis Dao.

The Cake Walk raises tens of thousands of dollars each year. Many of the students have their sights set on California State University, Sacramento.

There also will be cake decorating demonstrations, Sacramento Kings mascot Slamson, local and national celebrities, high school mascots, and testimony from students whose destinies were changed because of Closing the Gap.

The event’s community partners are Sacramento State, News10, Delegata and eRepublic.

Tickets are $65 per person, available through the Website or at the door. The Alumni Center is located on campus at 7485 College Town Drive.
