Dallas’ top bakers are donating pumpkin and pecan pies to support a fundraising campaign benefiting VNA Meals on Wheels and Hospice Care. Now in its 4th year, the Power of Pie fundraiser allows the public to purchase these delicious pies for $25 each and 100% of the money goes to VNA programs. Many purchasers rave about the fabulous pies and how they became the hero of their Thanksgiving table as guests remarked about their charitable nature.
Pie orders are being accepted today through November 16th and pick up is November 22 and 23rd. Not going to be in town? The Zero Calorie pie gives donors the opportunity to support the campaign without receiving an actual pie. Last year's campaign raised nearly $50,000 for VNA, and the group hopes to break that amount this year! The community can order pies at www.powerofpie.org and pick-up sites are available all over town - including Denton, McKinney, Frisco, Oak Cliff, East Dallas, Richardson and the Park Cities!
Participating chefs include Jill Bates of Fearing's, Gianni Santin of Haute Sweets, Maggie Huff of FT33, Chad Houser of Café Momentum, Danyele McPherson at Remedy and HG Supply, Nicolas Blouin at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, John Tesar of Knife, Anastacia Quinones of Oddfellows, and well known Dallas pie institutions, such as Norma's. Power of Pie was conceptualized by Meaders Ozarow, owner of Empire Baking Company, and she continues to head the campaign each year on behalf of VNA.
