World’s Biggest Bake Sale Coming To Grand Central Terminal

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – The bake sale to benefit New York City Food Bank is an extravaganza so big, officials from the Guinness World Records have been invited.

WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond: The First Girlfriend Will Be There

“We’ve never done anything to this scale in terms of baked items,” says Amy Scheer, the events coordinator for Grand Central Terminal, which is hosting the sale.

More than thirty vendors will take part.

“Magnolia is making unbelievable cupcakes, Murray’s Cheese will be supplying some of their savory items like cheesesteaks, Zaro’s will have their black and white cookies,” says Scheer.

“Gramercy Tavern will be there,” says spokesperson Debbie Kellogg. “… as well some great sweet stuff from Fresco by Scotto.”

The event is the brainchild of Sandra Lee, the television food personality and girlfriend of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. She’ll be on hand, as will New York restaurateurs Mario Batali and Lidia Bastianich.

The bake sale is Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The event is expected to raise $50,000 to feed New York’s hungry.

    Wonderful but definitely not the world’s largest – I have to believe that honor goes to mom Gretchen Holt Witt. Her first bake sale, which was the catalyst for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, along with the help of 250 volunteers raised about $400,000 when they baked 96,000 cookies! Inspired by her son Liam’s diagnosis of neuroblastoma, a deadly childhood cancer (Liam passed on Jan 24th at the age of 6), Cookies for Kids’ Cancer has now raised more than $2.5 million towards childhood cancer research. The story is on their website and it’s amazing.

    THE BAKE SALE SHOULD HAVE STARTED AT 7AM UNTIL 7PM. I AM SURE THEY COULD HAVE RAISED MUCH MORE MONEY IF THEY HAD OPENED IN THE MORNING WITH EVERYONE ON THEIR WAY TO WORK LOOKING FOR SOMETHING GOOD TO EAT WITH THEIR MORNING COFFEE. ANOTHER PROBLEM WAS THEY RAN OUT OF FOOD. I STOPPED AT ABOUT 5PM AND THE SALE WAS SOLD OUT!!!!!!!

    “The event is the brainchild of Sandra Lee, the television food personality and wife of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.” When were they married??? Was it in response to the “concubinage” comments?
