The Power of PINK cake auction, which benefits Trinity Health’s Cancer Exercise Rehabilitation Program, will take place on Wednesday, October 10, at the North Hill MarketPlace Foods.
Since the 1990s, MarketPlace has participated in a cake auction — most recently, the auctions have benefited the exercise rehabilitation program — in which local businesses and organizations decorate cakes, which are then auctioned off.
Through the Cancer Exercise Rehab Program, cancer patients can minimize fatigue, which is felt while undergoing cancer treatment, by circuit training twice a week for 12 weeks at the Minot Family YMCA. The money raised helps pay for their YMCA membership fees.
More than $15,000 was raised in last year’s auction, which saw 42 cakes auctioned off for anywhere from $175 to over $1,000 each.
Cake decoration will begin at 3:30 p.m., with the auctioning of the cakes starting at 4 p.m.
Teams interested in participating in the cake auction should sign up by calling Peggy Kallias at the North Hill MarketPlace Foods at 509-2209.
