Throw a Pi(e) in the Face of Cancer!

Locally owned Sweets So Geek and Young Professionals for the American Cancer Society (YPACS) will be hosting a charity art show to help fund cancer research and the Live Bold fund created by the Fort Wayne Small Business Owner’s Association in honor of local entrepreneur Lindsey Hively and other business owners who have left us too soon. On March 12th, the Saturday before Pi Day, Sweets So Geek will be displaying and auctioning pie pans that were passed out to area artists (including the Komets and the Mad Ants) with the instructions to “make art.” This art will both be a celebration of local creativity, a quirky fun celebration of Pi Day, and once sold, will benefit two great causes. An auction will also be held for the right to throw a whipped cream pie in the face of local celebrities! The target will be able to bid against everyone there to avoid taking the pie in the kisser! The show begins at 6:00 pm, and all art will be sold via silent auction ending at 9:00 pm. All proceeds will go directly to the American Cancer Society and the Live Bold fund. The entire community is invited to come out, bid on one of a kind art, and enjoy a fun and unique event. If unable to make it to the event, donations can be made directly to the American Cancer Society through the Relay For Life of Fort Wayne under the YPACS team. Sweets So Geek will also have Pi Day contests, awarding the customer who can recite Pi to the farthest decimal with a full pie and their name engraved in a trophy pie pan, to be displayed permanently at the store. There will also be music entertainment from School of Rock, a cash bar by CS3’s, live art being created, Pi(e) themed desserts, and more! Visit the Facebook event for updates!
