One-of-a-Kind Fundraiser Under Way for Horse Rescue

A Maryland horse rescue has launched a clever fundraising effort that some might say takes the cake. Days End Farm and Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Md., have teamed up to offer one lucky eBay bidder the opportunity to spend an afternoon with the stars of the Food Network's hit television show Ace of Cakes, Duff Goldman and Geof Manthorne.

The high bidder will take a tour of the cake shop, meet the other decorators and staff, and take home the latest Charm City Cakes gear. As an added bonus, the high bidder will get the opportunity to work on a cake with Goldman and Manthorne.

The winning bid will go directly to Days End Farm's effort to purchase a new emergency response vehicle that will aid the organization in its mission to help horses in need.

"A few people from the Charm City Cake team volunteer at the farm," said Dan Zalewski, development director for Days End Farm. "This idea was initiated on their end as they wanted to help with the rescue truck efforts.

"We all hope this effort is a success for the horses," he added. "We truly appreciate Duff, Geof, and all of Charm City Cakes for their support."

The eBay auction of the Charm City Cakes experience ends Dec. 18. Place your bid today and support the Days End Farm Horse Rescue.
