Let Them Eat Cake

We had a grand old time at our annual Cake Walk Fundraiser and Raffle last week! Proceeds benefit the parent group, Rancho Encinitas Academy League (REAL).

What’s a Cake Walk?

Numbered squares are laid out on a circular path. Tickets are sold in advance and participants walk around the path in time to music, which plays for a duration and then stops. A number is then called out, and the person standing on the square with that number wins a small cake or baked good as a prize.

Where did all those cakes come from?

Families volunteered to bake and bag cakes, cupcakes and cookies for the event.  We had an incredible display of delectable treats for winners to choose from.  Raffle winners had the opportunity to take home a whole cake and the selections were amazing!  Thank you so much to those who took the time to create such special creations for this fun event.

What else did you do?

We had other activities that made the entire event feel like a great big carnival.  Middle school students did face paining, our PE teacher, Coach Johnson, led the students in games and our Art teacher, Miss Michelle, facilitated a creative Valentine-themed activity.  There was fun and games all around and it was a perfect way to kick off a long Presidents Day weekend.
