What’s better than pie? That would be none other than a pie that’s baked with good intentions and auctioned for a worthy purpose—in other words, a pie for good.
I have the honor and the pleasure of participating in Piehole Project. It’s a silent auction where pies baked by some of Texas’ top chefs are up for bids. The auction will run from October 12 to 25, 2020 and will benefit the Chefs of Tomorrow Culinary and Hospitality Scholarship program.
Piehole Project is a key FestEvents Foundation fundraiser
Piehole Project is the brainchild of FestEvents Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting workforce development in the North Texas culinary industry. Led by Alison Matis, Cheryl Weis, and Emily Mantooth, FestEvents has been named a Big D Hero by none other than D Magazine.
The Chefs of Tomorrow scholarships is one of the programs that FestEvents launched to fulfill their mission. The scholarship awards $1,000 to students in local culinary schools to help them build careers in the North Texas restaurant and hospitality industry. In the two years since its launch, Chefs of Tomorrow has given $20,000 in scholarships.
Bid for my blackberry candied ginger pie
My entry to the Piehole Project auction is an Asian-inspired blackberry candied ginger pie. You won’t find this on the Asian Mint menu. How does it taste? You’ll have to bid on it and win to find out.
How do you bid for this amazing pie? Just register at event.gives, the site hosting the auction, by texting “PIEHOLEPROJECT” to 843-606-5995. Then, you just place your bid; all bids start at $75. You can also join a pie raffle for $10 per ticket. But if you don’t want pie, you can also donate straight up.
So, how about it? Bid for a taste of blackberry pie with candied ginger (or any of the pies up for auction) and support a worthy cause. It’s a good way to feed your soul.
