Bake sale held in Coral Gables to benefit restaurant, hospitality workers

CORAL GABLES, FLA. (WSVN) - A big bake sale to help local restaurants and hospitality workers returned to Coral Gables with more sweet and savory treats.

The Putting on the Pounds Bake Sale was held Sunday at the home of Lee Schrager, the founder and director of the South Beach Food & Wine Festival.

All the money raised will go to restaurant and hospitality workers laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bake sale expanded its menu this weekend to add homemade cheddar biscuits, a cocktail mixer and more.

Schrager said they held a bake sale last weekend and will hold another next Sunday for Mother’s Day.
