Got a Sweet Tooth? Calling all dessert-aholics!

Attention all chocoholics, candy fanatics, and sugary-goodness fiends! The eighth annual “Just Desserts” fundraiser for the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton Foundation is coming up! The event will be held from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 15 in the UACCM Plaza, courtyard and pavilion.

“Just Desserts” features all-you-can-eat desserts donated by area bakeries and restaurants, as well as UACCM faculty, staff, and Foundation Board members. There will also be a gourmet coffee bar, a sugar-free dessert bar, and savory snacks including Petit Jean meat and cheese trays, assorted crackers and other appetizers. Additionally, there will be entertainment by the UACCM Choir and door prizes throughout the evening.

The event will include a live auction featuring items donated by local businesses and individuals, as well as silent and chance auctions. During the “One Sweet Deal” chance auction, tickets can be purchased for $1 each and placed into a drop box by each auction item. Beginning at 7:30, one winning ticket will be drawn for each item. Remaining dessert items will be auctioned at 7:45 p.m.

Tickets to the event are $8.00 for adults, $3.00 for ages six to twelve, and free for children five and under and can be purchased at the door.

Proceeds from this year’s event will be applied toward a general campus improvement fund which will be utilized to purchase signage and fund other campus beautification projects. During the past seven years, the event has raised approximately $37,000, resulting in the purchases of a baby grand piano, audio and video equipment, a large outdoor tent for special events, and the UACCM Pavilion. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, which makes contributions from businesses and individuals tax-deductible within the limits of the law.

We hope to see you for this sweeeeeeeeet fundraising event!
