Flyer for World's Largest Cakewalk EventYou may have heard about it by now!  Yes, Gloucester is going to attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Record’s – Cakewalk Record!  BUT, there is always a but…WE NEED YOUR HELP TO PULL THIS OFF!  What do we need?  WE NEED YOUR Registration, WE NEED 100 donated cakes, WE NEED raffle prizes (remember it’s Mother’s Day Weekend, go things for Mom would be nice!) and WE NEED Volunteers to help!

This Cakewalk is also a fundraiser.  We have been raising $$$ for an ALL ACCESSIBLE PLAYGROUND  at Woodville Park.  Entry fees from the Cakewalk will go toward that playground.  If you are not interested in walking, please consider donating $$$, we have set up an easy online donation page.  Raffle Prize Donations are also needed, email us and we will have a Cakewalk Committee Member get in touch with you to pick it up!  We need help during the Cakewalk, managing over 100 cakes and hopefully at least 500 people.  Email us if you are interested in volunteering.

Hope to hear from you soon!

We are also hoping to have cake decorating displays and maybe a few other activities going on.  The plans are not finalized yet.  We want to make sure we meet all of the Guinness World Record rules!
