Not all gingerbread houses sold. But the ones that did sell, and in addition to money collected during the bake sale portion of our event, we raised: $722.00, of which, all was donated to the St George Children's Museum on December 20, 2019 in the amount of $722.00.

*The St George children's Museum wasn't asked for a $25 minimum donation to participate since all auction and bake sale proceeds would be donated to them.

Of the $600 collected from participating businesses, $350 went towards prize monies and the remainder was used towards the costs of doing business, namely advertising.
