Oct. 15, 2009, CALGARY – Sponsors are
needed for the fourth annual L’Arche Cake Walk, being held in conjunction with
the fifth annual Lindt Chocolate Competition at the Southern Alberta Institute
of Technology (SAIT) in March 2010.



The event “promises to be
a culinary spectacle that Calgary has never seen,” says Clark Adams, a SAIT
instructor and member of the Alberta Pastry Chefs Guild. “We are forecasting
upward of 2,500 people to attend.”

Competitors are asked to
make edible works of art, showstoppers and a piece de
resistance in a variety of mediums, including gum paste, fondant,
chocolate, pulled sugar, etc.

“Sponsors are what is
going to help make this a day to remember in Calgary culinary history,” says
Adams, “and we would like you to be involved, either financially or by donated
product for our reception, or for door prizes.”

Funds raised at the event
will benefit L’Arche Calgary and the Alberta Pastry Chefs Guild. L’Arche
Calgary is part of the International Federation of
L'Arche, founded in 1964 by Jean Vanier in response to the need of people with
developmental disabilities to find a valid place in society.
