Calling all woodworkers! Get a head start on Bread ’N’ Boards.

August 24, 2018

It may be hot now, but the snow — and cutting boards — will be flying before we know it!

Now is the perfect time to start crafting a one-of-a-kind Signature Board for the Sears Trostel 13th Annual Bread ’N’ Boards fundraiser.

Since 2005, the event has raised $295,635 for the Food Bank for Larimer County, and we could not have done it without the help of our local woodworking community.

As we prepare for the event on Saturday, December 1, we once again look to our woodworking friends to show their stuff!

The Signature Board Silent Auction plays a big part in the success of the event, where over 1000 cutting boards are sold to benefit the Food Bank. Woodworking artisans donate their time and talents to create a beautiful variety of custom hardwood cutting boards for the auction. These boards can bring in contributions from $35 to $400 each.

Help us fill the silent auction coffers for this year’s fundraiser. GET INSPIRED and donate a board to the cause!

Create a wooden masterpiece (or more than one!) to help provide inspiration for culinary delights in the kitchens of the lucky recipients. Woodworkers from novice to professional are encouraged to participate.

Signature Board donors receive a Bread ’N’ Boards t-shirt, and those who wish to promote their professional talents may display brochures and business cards at the event.

Please let us know you're on-board to donate a Signature Board. Email Liz Carter at or call her at the Riverside store, 970-482-1928. Completed boards for the auction are due by Thursday, November 29.
