First, of course, I looked over all the bakery. I was very interested in bidding on a large pie called a sampler which had four different fruits in it with just strips of crust on the top. My hubby likes pie very much so thought I would go out on that one. Unfortunately, they did not auction it off. Boo! But I guess that was best because I got three other things instead and didn't have to bid very high.

I bid $100 for the Black Forest Cake which had cherries in it but was outbid. I quit when it went over $100, but the kind gentleman (Jim N., one of our deacons) who outbid me for it brought me over a large piece afterward to share with me. I thought that was very nice of him and the cake was delicious! I never had anything like it before and shared some of it with my hubby, but he didn't care for it so I got to eat practically the whole piece myself.

This is a fun event I look forward to every year now. Even if I'm not actually the high bidder, I figure I'm helping the youth group raise more money just by bidding, right?
