The citywide bake sale organization Austin Bakes has hosted numerous fundraising events over the past several years, but its upcoming sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 16 is looking to be its largest yet.

Organizers have already confirmed six sale sites — Stiles Switch, Crema Bakery & Cafe, Springdale Farm, Whole Foods Bee Caves, Jo’s Coffee downtown, Whole Foods 365 in Cedar Park — and more than 100 bakers have signed up to contribute baked goods. You can still sign up to participate, either as a baker or as a site leader/volunteer/organizer, through austinbakes.org. If you can’t be here on Sept. 16, you can support the organization’s fundraising efforts through buying merchandise, including shirts and tote bags.

All proceeds will go to Americares. Each bake sale site will also collect emergency supplies for local relief organizations.
