Take the Cake Auction

December 10, 2021

DeSoto House Hotel

2021 will mark the 13th annual Take the Cake Gala.  The cake auction was started years ago by Carolyn and Eric Dregne, owners of Wedding Day Bakery, as a fun filled evening to support the Galena ARC. Each year local professional and non-professional bakers are asked to create sweet treat to be live auctioned off to the crowd of friends, family and neighbors. Every year there is a cake that pits mom against son, husband against wife or neighbors against each other for bragging rights as to who bought the best cake and helped support a vital organization in the Galena Community.

A few years back a ‘junior’ division was added to the event. The talent by our local bakers is amazing and every junior cake competes and often times beat the amount raised by professional bakers.
