Join us for all-you-can-eat pie and help celebrate life at the 3rd Annual Pie Fest, honoring the memory of our friend Jayna Murray, whose own life ended far too soon at her place of employment at the Lululemon store in Bethesda in 2011.
How does it work? Bring a homemade pie to compete for prizes, or just come to eat and be merry. There will be an on-site cash bar.
Each pie can be entered into one of six categories:
o Fruit (other than apple)
o Piepourri (miscellaneous)
Any filling in a 9-inch pie crust qualifies, and there are no limits on entries. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite in each category.
Pie entries must arrive between 1:00 PM and 2:30 PM, voting closes at 4:00 PM, and winners will be announced at 4:30PM. There will be six winners - but with an afternoon of delicious pie, rest assured, there will be no losers!
Tax-deductible tickets are $15 if entering pie and $25 if just bringing your appetite. 20% discount if purchased by October 13.
Tickets must be purchased in advance.
All proceeds will be donated to the Jayna Troxel Murray Foundation, which supports and promotes the interests and passions (academics, athletics, travel, fine arts, and overall personal improvement) that were prominent in defining and enriching Jayna’s life, with the intended outcome of bettering the lives of others. The foundation provides scholarships for tuition to particular educational programs (undergraduate and graduate study, travel abroad, and summer camps) that Jayna attended: St. Louis University Madrid study abroad program, Semester at Sea, George Washington University, Johns Hopkins University, and Kamp Kanakuk. Donations gratefully accepted.
