On Wednesday, November 13 from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm AIDS Saskatoon will have two tables booked where we will be selling mass amounts of tasty baked goods for people to enjoy at Royal University Hospital. Last year it was tons of fun, and their agency raised approximately $700 between their bake sale and employee contributions! They are looking to outdo themselves and beat their total from last year, and with 5 hours and a ton of baking, I am sure they can do it!
