The French Tarte at the Auction for Center for Women and Enterprise

Last week the Center for Women and Enterprise held their annual capital fundraising auction in Providence and Susie donated certificates for one of her tarts (to be baked) and a croissant class for four people. The 4th floor event room in the Conley Wharf building overlooking the head of the Narragansett Bay was packed as potential buyers sipped drinks, ate various things being carried around on trays.

Most of the items were works of art, of course, jewelry, paintings, and a few unique clothing items, and very little food: just the French Tarte and a young woman from Cape Cod selling Brazilian truffles. Susie's certificates for a fresh-baked 9-inch apple tart and a 2-hour croissant class for four people each received a half dozen bids or more and sold for the proverbial pretty penny. Yowzah!

Winner of the certificate for the 9-inch tart got to take this little tart home!
