For the past 12 years in Tampa, the Red Cross has held the Create your Own Gingerbread Event at the historic University of Tampa. This unique fundraising event brings together the Tampa community to celebrate the holiday season while supporting the Red Cross. The day not only consists of the Gingerbread decorating contest, but also includes brunch, holiday shopping with local vendors and fabulous prizes.
Prizes go to the most creative Gingerbread houses and many participants bring extra decoration – and lots of creativity – to add a special flare. All proceeds from both events will be used by the Tampa Bay Chapter to support local services such as Disaster Services and Services to Armed Forces.
The Tampa event which includes brunch is set for Saturday, December 8th from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM at the University of Tampa’s Fletcher Lounge at Plant Hall, 401 W. Kennedy Boulevard, Tampa, FL. The Tampa event will feature vendors for holiday shopping and a gingerbread house decorating demonstration by the Arts Institute of Tampa Culinary Program. Ticket prices are $75 for adults and $50 for children under 15.
