Miami’s own Renee Joslyn, blogger at Flamingo Musings is the Miami team captain heading up a bake sale to end childhood hunger. Lots of local businesses and chefs have donated to this wonderful cause with gift cards from Harry’s Pizzeria, Whisk Gourmet Food & Catering, Crave Restaurant and includes a class gift certificate for 2 from Wok Star, that’s me! Renee, herself has donated a gift basket of her Freakin’ Flamingo’s wonderful micro-batch jams & gift items. (I’ve had the pleasure of tasting numerous jars and now cannot buy commercial ones. I am going to order some for gifts right now!) There are many ways you can contribute or buy a raffle for a chance to win those gift cards! Click to see how you can help end child hunger.
