The Baker’s Dozen is a women’s society that brings together our community’s most dynamic and inspiring women – women who believe in making a difference – and empowers them to act on that belief in a fulfilling and measurable way. During an eight-month campaign, each Honoree raises funds to provide meals for our hungry guests. And, at the close of the campaign, these outstanding Women are honored for their achievements during The Baker’s Dozen Celebratory Luncheon. The 2019 luncheon will take place at Catawba Country Club from 11:30AM-1PM. Tickets to the banquet are $40 ($20.95 tax-deductible).
Funding raised by The Baker’s Dozen will play a substantial role in providing meals and staple items to those in need throughout our community. Through these women and their support, we hope to continue to reach more individuals in need, working towards the vision of alleviating the pain and indignity of hunger.
