The Shortbread Showdown at The Arts Station on Sunday raised $218 was raised for the food bank.

There were 18 entries, including a 10-year-old girl, who raised the most money.

The winners of the showdown were determined by “votes” (i.e. donations) that were collected in the corresponding voting jars for each cookie.  The top three winners:

1st Place- Margaret Burrard with “Grandma’s Recipe”

2nd Place- Rebecca Hall with “Brown Sugar Fingers”

3rd Place- Claire Gadd with “Black n’ Whites”

 

Leah Heavey, the youngest baker of the day, got a special mention. At 10-years-old she made three entries, and raised $40.30, the most money out of everyone.
