The Guild is always baking to raise funds to support our efforts.  We have baked for Bar Mitzvahs, auctions and gifts.  We are available to bake quality items for your next event too – all we ask is for a generous donation to the Guild’s on-going efforts in return.  Send a note for more information.

2011 Pie Fest!

The Olympia Pie Bakers Guild was so delighted with the community’s response to our annual Pie-Baking Contest supporting the Thurston County Food Bank and Senior Nutrition Program that we’ve decided to expand our horizons.  We have simply dropped the “pie” and our now the Olympia Bakers Guild!  Don’t worry, our mission to serve is still the same and we will continue with the annual Pie-Baking Contest to fundraise for these important organizations as well as support GRuB during their annual auction. 

Please add us to your Favorites and check back often.  You can also find us on Facebook and be our Friend!

In the meantime, we proudly present Pie Fest 2011!
