The Oldies but Goodies Relay for Life Team is hosting its annual “Celebrity Pie Auction.”
Pies will be baked by various Highland “celebrities” and auctioned off during the “Paint the Town Purple” at the Peanut Butter & Jam Festival on Friday, June 17, on the Square downtown, beginning at 12:15 p.m. Virgil Straeter will serve as auctioneer. All proceeds will benefit Highland’s Relay for Life.
Highland celebrities who have consented to bake a pie for the auction are Curt Libbra of the Highland News Leader (rhubarb pie), Howard Held of the Chamber of Commerce (peach-cherry pie), Bruce Bellm of Highland Country Club (strawberry pie), Jay Boulanger of Spengel-Boulanger Funeral Home (mixed berry pie), Pastor Will VerDuin of Evangelical United Church of Christ (“Fruit of the Loom” pie), Carla Riva and Martha Edmonds of Highland Health Care (“Team Peach Pie”), Chief of Police Terry Bell (cherry pie), City Councilman Neill Nicolaides (pumpkin cheesecake pie), City Manager Mark Latham (Toll House chocolate chip cookie pie), Superintendent of Schools Mike Sutton (pecan pie), and Mayor Joe Michaelis (blackberry pie).
You won’t want to miss this — a chance to purchase a delicious pie, baked by one of Highland’s finest — and support the fight against cancer at the same time.
