Some of San Diego’s most renowned chefs will unite this Sunday for a sweet cause: to whip up baked goods as part of a fundraiser to end childhood hunger.
From 10 a.m. to noon, local food writer Erin Jackson and her organization, Bake Me Some Love, will host a high-end bake sale at Hotel Solamar’s rooftop LOUNGESix located at 616 J St. in downtown San Diego.
The inaugural “Chef-Driven Bake Sale” will boast sweet and savory goodies created by top-notch San Diego chefs and will serve to support the “No Kid Hungry” campaign spearheaded by the non-profit organization, Share Our Strength. The national campaign aims to end childhood hunger and connects kids in need with nutritious food.
Organizers of Sunday’s Chef-Driven Bake Sale say 100 percent of the proceeds from the event will go to No Kid Hungry. Every dollar raised can help connect a child with up to 10 healthy meals.
Admission to the event is $5 per person. There, attendees can buy a variety of baked goods -- from cookies to cupcakes -- created by top chefs, for $5 a pop.
Organizers say they've compiled a sweet "baker's dozen" of San Diego-based chefs to participate in the event. The lineup includes:
• Donna Antaloczy – Ironside Fish & Oyster
• Tae Dickey – BIGA
• Rygie Dy – Bottega Americano
• Kayli Faucher – The Crack Shack
• Matt Gordon – Urban Solace
• Christian Graves – Jsix
• Rocio Siso‐Gurriaran – Nine‐Ten
• Vivian Hernandez‐Jackson – Azucar
• Rachel King – Indie
• Francis Laureano – Crafted Baked Goods
• Donald Lockhart – Cusp
• Jojo Rossi – Whisknladle Hospitality
• Jessica Scott – Puesto
Hotel Solamar donated the use of its rooftop, poolside lounge for the event. Attendees will also be treated to free coffee, cocktail specials at the bar and live music.
