Children Service’s became a cupcake lover’s dream come true.

Thursday, the organization sponsored cupcake wars in order to raise money for Operation Feed. This is the second year for the event.

"There are many people who are hungry and sometimes others don’t really recognize that because their bellies are full, so what we wanted to do was reach out to our community and hopefully they’ll help us feed those who are less fortunate then we are," said organizer Patsy McDonald. 

Those attending paid $4 for a ham sandwich lunch with a cupcake for dessert. Last year they raised $800.

"We’ve got so many good people in our organization that want to help people and this is a very worth cause, so we’ve always supported Operation Feed," added Organizer June Smith.

Donning chef’s hats Sheriff Matt Lutz, Kerry Haddox from Child Support and Dave Boyer from Children Services had the honor of judging this year’s 25 entries.
