Potlatch 15 Tiptree Bake Sale

The Tiptree Bake Sale returns!

This year at Potlatch, we'll be hosting a Tiptree Bake Sale on Saturday afternoon. The proceeds from these events support the James Tiptree, Jr. Award -"an annual literary prize for science fiction or fantasy that expands or explores our understanding of gender" (see for information.)

If you're interested in baking for the sale, please let me know by emailing me at bakesale@potlatch-sf.org. Tell me what you'll donate, it's that simple. We'll accept anything from candy and cookies to cakes, cheesecakes, savory nibbles (cheese straws anyone?) Gingerbread? Fudge? Baklava? Cupcakes (very trendy, you know). Above all, Things with Chocolate (chocolate things?) I'll ask for an ingredient list to go with your item to assist folks with food allergies or sensitivities.

If you're interested in helping but not baking, we could probably use either set-up help or stuff like serving utensils, paper plates and a few loans of display copies of the Tiptree cookbooks (some of us have food-stained versions and would love to display a pristine copy.) Email me and we'll talk.

The sale will take place Saturay afternoon in the hospitality area (aka Con Suite) The items will be very reasonably priced and all the money goes directly to the Tiptree Literary Award Council. Plan to come by and buy. While you're there, pick up a Tiptree Award Consideration Form (we'll print off some of the on-line forms for you to take away). Get a tattoo that shows you're a member in good sitting of the Secret Feminist Cabal! (non-permanent, available at the bake sale!)

And remember, any baked goods or sweets that are consumed in a good cause contain no calories. It's one of the unwritten rules. Oh, wait, I just wrote it. That's okay, you can still believe it. Would I lie to you about something so important?
