Ms. Diana Chapman publishes a great blog benefitting youth in OUR community.
I read it regularly and I have been in contact with Ms. Chapman about my theft of information from her blog, The Underground For Kids at: www.theundergroundforkids.blogspot.com.
I altered some of the format of Ms. Chapman's post and for that I am very guilty.
Here goes the altered post from Ms. Chapman:
ENJOY LIFE IN AN AMAZINGLY HUMOROUS WAY;
ATTEND THE LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE SPOUSES CLUB FUNDRAISER
TO SEND MILITARY CHILDREN TO COLLEGE;
And HELP DIANA BY SIGNING UP AS A BLOG FOLLOWER;
(You are more than welcome to sign up as a blog follower on Ms. Chapman's blog. I did.)
Last year, I had the time of my life attending this event.
What was the most fun was the cake auction.
Many of the military wives concocted the most remarkable looking cakes – cakes like I’ve never seen before, some towering as high as wedding cakes – and some looking like the leaning tower of Pisa.
Cakes started out at low rates during the auction, say like $30 a pop, but as the evening wore on and the cakes kept coming out and were paraded around, the prices went up. Someone paid $300 for a cake last year.
If you want to have fun, attend this frosting-filled event by filling out the information below. You won’t regret it. Plus, you help kids!

Have a nice meal. Meet folks who may only be in our beloved community temporarily and help them be more comfortable with living here.
Bid on a cake, you fortunate folks. Having diabetes means my former grand times of enjoying many baked and decorated treats continue to be former grand times, but that shouldn't stop you from getting your cake-cutter out and having a fantastic treat, or two, or three, or more.
