Fourth annual Pie in the Park is Aug. 23
KINGSTON — The the Village Green Foundation’s fourth annual Pie inthe Park is scheduled for Aug. 23, 6-8 p.m. at Village Green Park.
Pie in the Park includes a pie auction, which, last year, raised more than $12,000 for the foundation.
Attendees can taste as many pies as they can handle. This year, there will be a children’s pie-eating contest.
During the 2011 event, Kingston Rotary Club President Clint Boxman auctioned more than 60 pies. Peter Raffa bid energetically to take home a $90 pecan pie. Raffa is a Bainbridge Island resident and executive director of the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation.
County Commissioner Rob Gelder and Kingston businessman Dave Wetter were the winners of the day’s opening bid. For $800, Wetter earned the right to pick the first two pies out of the entire stock. Gelder was second place with a bid of $600, giving him the right to pick pies 3 and 4. All remaining pies were auctioned off individually.
