 The annual Rigby-Wright Cake Auction at Trinity College School has once again raised funds to support a number of causes near to the hearts of the School’s female day students.

The 16th annual event raised about $6,350 which will be divided amongst the Northumberland Humane Society, Rebound Child and Youth Services, Free the Children, Ryan’s Wells, Outreach 360, Ride to Conquer Cancer, Because I am a Girl, Ke Be la, Northumberland Youth Cares, Jamaican Self-Help, Greenwood Coalition, St. Vincent’s Kitchen – Oshawa and Plan Canada (formerly the Foster Parents Plan). Each of the houses sponsors a child through Plan Canada.

The day began with a live auction during chapel, where houses banded together to bid on 11 large cakes. This year’s designs included an iPhone, the Super Bowl, a Skittles rainbow, Candyland, a pool table, the Stanley Cup, a checkerboard, an enormous chocolate chip cookie, a giant heart, a candy mountain and a giant rainbow of cupcakes.

Throughout the day, students and staff were able to place silent bids on 35 small cakes made by Rigby and Wright house members as well as cakes and cupcakes donated by past parent Mrs. Ann Biggar and present parent Mrs. Heike Kwok. Students also paid $1 to decorate their own cupcake. Carly Ramsay won the “Guess the Gummy Bear” contest and was only four away from the actual number, while Will Langford successfully guessed a three-digit combination to open a box containing a Dairy Queen gift certificate.

Congratulations to the girls of Rigby and Wright Houses, as well as their housemasters and assistant housemasters, on hosting a wonderful event which will assist many worthy causes!
