We limit each organization to two fundraising nights per year. We are willing to host additional nights, dependent on the success of previous events.

Please reply to your confirmation e-mail as soon as possible to cancel your event. Your fundraising night coordinator will notify the bakery cafe of the cancellation.

I deleted my flyer by accident. How can I get a new one?

We are happy to send you a new flyer. Please reply to your confirmation email.

I never received a confirmation email or flyer.
