Eat pie, help kids!
Indy Pie Wars brings together the yumminess of pie with the benefit of helping kids. The greater Indianapolis social media community is getting together for a pie smack down on Tuesday, June 28, 2011. Amateur bakers from Noblesville to Greenwood will be bringing their best to Brugge Brasserie to compete for the coveted "Pie Maker Jedi" award. All proceeds from the event will be donated to School On Wheels, to help provide tutoring and advocacy for school-aged kids impacted by homelessness.
Participate in one of three ways
1. Contestant - Sign up to enter the pie judging competition. If you enter the competition, you must bring two pies - one for judging and one for sharing. Pieces of pie will be sold to raise funds for School On Wheels. See below for judging rules.
2. Participant - Don't want to be judged? Not problem. Simply bring a pie (homemade or store bought). Pieces of pie will be sold for $5 a piece to raise funds for School On Wheels.
3. Attendee - Just enjoy eating pie? Who doesn't? Pay a $5 attendance fee and then come enjoy a great selection of pies for $5 per slice. Your attendance fee will be donated to School On Wheels.
Help School On Wheels
To raise money for School On Wheels, pies provided by Pie Wars Attendees and Contestants will be sold at $5 per slice. Please bring cash or your checkbook to purchase pie slices and make donations. Credit cards cannot be accepted at the event.
PLEASE NOTE: While you can pay at the door, YOU MUST RSVP if you are attending because of space restrictions.
