CHS Pics | Gray-frosted bake sale on Capitol Hill raises money and spirits to fight depression

IMG_0674IMG_0690Gray frosting covering delicious baked goods helped raise funds and spirits in Pike/Pine Saturday as the worldwide Depressed Cake Shop movement popped up on Capitol Hill.

CHS wrote about the one-day bake sale here. The cakes, cupcakes and cookies were donated by local bakers. The Hill sale went well — all the treats were sold out early.

Proceeds from the sale benefitted the National Alliance for Mental Illness. If you missed out, we can’t help you with tracking down gray frosting but we can point you to NAMI-greater Seattle.com to make a donation.

  1. Thank you so much to everyone who participated in today’s event and to the amazing Melissa Riddington whose tireless work made it happen. NAMI Greater Seattle serves individuals with serious and persistent mental illness and their families. This is difficult work for which funding is short and fundraising is tough. The Depressed Cake Shop Seattle not only brought in much needed support for our programming, but helped us connect to the community in a way that is fun and positive. We are very grateful.
