Bakers Back the Blue is conducted a silent auction Friday at Sulphur Springs City Hall. The event from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. is a fund raiser for the Adopt A Cop program. All proceeds from the day’s activities will be given to Adopt A Cop.
Michelle Idzy, local baker, stated that is a way for bakers to use their God given talents to help the community. She began speaking with other bakers and the idea was born. The cakes, cookies, and pies that are being auctioned are the creative works of each baker.
At 5 p.m. the bidding will conclude and people will be contacted before 6 p.m. to pick up their cake. Again, all the funds will go to Adopt A Cop to purchase additional tactical equipment for the officers. All law enforcement officers in Hopkins County have been adopted according to Idzy.
