Pies for Purpose

Freshly-baked Lattice Pie Announcing Pies for Purpose Fundraiser by Oakland Uptown Rotary

Oakland Uptown Rotary (OUR) club is proud to invite you to participate in our inaugural Pies For Purpose event. This is your opportunity to purchase pies for your Thanksgiving holiday meal and to donate pies to brighten the holiday meal of those in need.  Buy Some and Give Some.  Or simply just Give Some!

We have partnered with three local businesses to be OUR Makers of Baked Happiness.  And we have partnered with local organizations to be OUR Recipients of Baked Happiness.  How many organizations and families we help depends on the generosity of OUR community.
