2009 Eat Dessert First! Report

Picture-perfect weather, delicious desserts made from fruit grown right here in the Gorge, an old-fashion pie eating contest and music by Chigwaya, a local youth marimba ensemble…it was an event to remember! Here’s a list of the winners and a handful of images to remember a wonderful day by…

• Kathy Hannen-Smith won $500 for Best Apple Pie – award sponsored by Shortt Supply and Providence Health & Services
• Stephanie Haliei won $500 for Best Pear Pie – award sponsored by the Columbia Gorge Fruit Growers
• Linda Mills won $500 for Best Baked Fruit Dessert – award sponsored by the Hood River Heights Business Association

Congratulations to the winners and a big THANK YOU to everyone who came out to help set up, perform as judges, and eat wonderful desserts! All funds raised at today’s event will go to Helping Hands against Violence – thanks again for helping us help the community!
