The goal for the Carr Center Cake Auction each year is to make people more aware of the programs the Alfred S. Carr Center offers to the community. Not only does the Carr Center offer daily programs for disabled residents of Muskingum County, the organization also has a scholarship program for students seeking higher education. Executive director for the Carr Center, Sonja Mawhorter says "The Memorial Scholarship awards one high school senior a one-thousand dollar scholarship for college or secondary education." This year’s Scholarship recipient is Hannah Starner, who has overcome Scoliosis in order to maintain a bright future. The first day of the cake auction raised 58,535 dollars.
