“Sweets for the Sweet” is a local restaurant dessert competition hosted by the Caritas House Inc., which assists people living in 22 counties of northern West Virginia who are living with HIV/AIDS. The Caritas (Latin for charity) House was created in 1994 and is one of three organizations in the state who assist these individuals.
The 20th annual event was held on Saturday at the WVU Alumni Center. It cost $20 and the proceeds benefited the Caritas House. The event featured the dessert tasting competition, raffles, door prizes and auctions.
Heather and I found a table right across from Joel, who is my fellow foodie friend within University Relations and happens to bake at Rising Creek Bakery occasionally. Heather’s friends April and Emily joined us, and we began making our rounds to the 13 (THIRTEEN!) different restaurant participants.
