Sugar Rush event to benefit Harmony House and Watching over Whiskers

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., April 4, 2016 — Drury University’s Sigma Pi chapter, along with The Cake Pop Company, are proud to announce the return of Sugar Rush, a dessert sampling charity event. Sugar Rush will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 14, at the O’Reilly Family Event Center at Drury University.

All proceeds will benefit Harmony House, one of the state’s largest shelters and resource centers for domestic violence victims and their families, and Watching Over Whiskers, a local animal rescue and support fund.

Guests will sample tasty treats from some of the best in the Ozarks including Aviary Cafe, Blue Bell Creameries, Brick & Mortar Coffee, Cake Pop Co., Chick-Fil-A, Daylight Donuts, Golden Corral, Grammy K’s Sweet Creations, Heroes Coffee, June’s Cakery, Kilwins Branson, Neighbor’s Mill Bakery & Cafe, Simply Delicious Catering, Tea Bar & Bites, and Uncommon Confections.

Sugar Rush was held in 2010 and 2011 but was left without a hosting committee until Drury Sigma Pi members stepped in to resurrect the concept earlier this year. “Witnessing the enormous impact Sugar Rush has had in the past for both the businesses and nonprofits involved, we’ve spent the last few months reinventing the original idea while finding opportunities to innovate in an effort to create the best experience possible,” says Kent Otto, Drury’s Sigma Pi chapter director.

Student organizers have “been able to gain invaluable real-world experience by organizing an event of this magnitude,” says student Elias Jardell.

General admission tickets are $15 if purchased in advance at sgfSugarRush.com and $20 at the door. Student tickets are $10 and kids 8 and under are free.
