Freedom Readers Takes the Cake We participated in The Cakes for a Cause fundraiser on Nov. 2 at Hook and Barrel/ Croissants Bistro and Bakery in Myrtle Beach. .. Of the cakes designed to represent 5 area nonprofits, ours won first place!

Students from the Culinary Arts program at HGTC partnered with local non-profits to decorate cakes in a theme that represents their assigned non-profit partner’s mission. Guests purchased “votes” which were used to vote for their favorite cake. All proceeds generated were donated directly to each of the non-profits. To eliminate any bias on the votes/donations, there were celebrity judges who decided on the best cake decoration winner.

Everyone enjoyed the live music and delicious oyster roast. Round of applause for all of the HGTC Culinary Arts students who did an amazing job on their cakes!
That’s a wrap for the Fall 2019 session...
