Just Desserts fundraiser Oct. 17

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton Foundation will host its 12th annual Just Desserts fundraiser from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 17, in the UACCM Plaza. Tickets are $15 each or $25 per couple.

Just Desserts includes an all-you-can-eat dessert buffet, wine bar, gourmet coffee bar, dessert auction, raffle and super raffle. In addition to the array of sweets, an assortment of savory snacks including Petit Jean meat and cheese trays is part of the food selection.

The theme for this year’s event is “Let Them Eat Cake” and will feature French baroque decorations. The John Cotton Quartet will play a jazz mix to complement the lavish theme.

This year, the foundation will auction desserts and dessert-related items such as cake stands, cake servers, gift certificates and more. The super raffle will feature a two-night stay at Big Cedar Lodge among other prizes.

Attendees peruse the desserts at the UACCM fundraiser.

Food for the event is donated by area bakeries and restaurants as well as UACCM faculty, staff and foundation board members. The UACCM foundation is currently seeking sponsorships and donations of desserts and savory dishes as well as auction and raffle items.

Tickets are available for purchase at uaccm.edu, and sponsorship and donation information is available there as well. Also, tickets may be purchased from any UACCM foundation board member or at the door the night of the event.
