Cupcakes and charity – could there be a sweeter combination? Recently, ABC 7’s Natasha Barrett hosted the 2nd Annual Cupcake & Cocktails benefiting the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. She invited local media personalities Alison Starling, Leon Harris, Arch Campbell (all from ABC 7), Steve Chenevey (Fox 5), Anita Brikman (WUSA 9), and John Schriffen (NBC 4) to One Lounge and gave them the daunting task of picking the city’s best cupcakes. The event attracted over 110 guests, who sipped cocktails and tasted some of the hors d’ouvres … and cupcakes.

Tickets to the event included a silent auction and a chance to win a 7-day cruise. It raised more than $7,000 for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America.

–         Top Cupcake Small: b+l bakehouse
