The Sweet Charity Results, and a Blogger's Lament

Recently Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance presented Sweet Charity, a dessert-based fundraiser for the arts on Friday, Nov. 16.

Drooling over the list of sweets they had on hand from awesome local restaurants (more than 20 different ones, including Feast, RA Sushi and Busy B's Bakery who were among the winners), and signature dessert cocktails, I’m totally bummed that my invitation was apparently lost in the mail. More than 400 people came together to enjoy great desserts, support arts education and take in a a wonderful Arizona night. I guess I will forgive the SAACA folks this time…still jealous though.

Take a look below the cut to see the list of the winners, including the top prize, which went to Wildflower American Cuisine.
