Gemelli Gourmet Market North is a small market that sells fresh, pre-made food amongst other items. In its cafe section, Gemelli's sold a variety of To Be Gluten Free goodies in 2017.
To Be Gluten Free was a vendor throughout the summer of 2017 and 2018 at the Sea Cliff Farmer's Market. Items sold included classics like Nutella Muffins and summer specials such as mini coffee cake loaves.
Peanut butter dog treats were also sold through To Be Gluten Free's "Give a Bone, Get a Bone" program in which all money made from dog bone sales was donated to Cove Animal Rescue. For each dog bone sold, one was baked for a dog at the rescue as well.
On the first Sunday of October, Kiwanis International sponsors the Village of Sea Cliff's annual Mini Mart. Vendors line the main street in Sea Cliff and local artisans from across Long Island show off their goods. To Be Gluten Free (formally known as Oh My Gluten Freee) is proud to have been a vendor at Mini Mart in 2016 and 2017.
I volunteer at Cove Animal Rescue, an incredible animal shelter in Glen Cove, Long Island. Each year they host a gala to raise money and thank their supporters. An auction is apart of the gala, and To Be Gluten Free puts together a raffle basket each year!
To Be Gluten Free was a featured vendor at Art in Motion in April 2017 and the First City Market in November 2017 at Glen Cove’s First City Project. To Be Gluten Free loved being apart of this fantastic fall pop-up art gallery and vendor market. Special thanks to Wildflower Long Island for inviting To Be Gluten Free to be apart of this incredible day.
For Northwestern University Dance Marathon’s BUILD party in December 2018, I baked 60 sugar cookies for Communities In Schools of Chicago students from three elementary schools to decorate. Communities in Schools of Chicago was the NUDM benefactor during the 2018-2019 school year, and Northwestern University students raised money for this incredible organization all year long.
Catnip is an organization under Northwestern University’s News Network. The group specializes in unscripted, variety and entertainment content. I had the pleasure of working with the Catnip team for their video, “Catnip in the Kitchen.” Check it out… click HERE.
In March 2019, I baked 200 vegan & gluten free brownies for Northwestern University's Dance Marathon. A thirty hour long event, NUDM is one of the largest independent student-run philanthropies in the nation. Participants raise money for a specific benefactor, this years’ being Communities in Schools of Chicago. Thirty hours of dancing makes for some hungry people, so throughout NUDM, dancers chow down on goodies donated by local vendors. To Be Gluten Free made sure dancers with food allergies got their fair share of sweet treats, too. Huge thank you to Tynan Friend and Nicole Bankoski for asking me to be a part of NUDM in the sweetest way possible!
One of my favorite things I did at Northwestern University during my freshman year was connect with incredible student organizations like AMASE. AMASE—Academy of Music and Arts for Special Education—provides weekly music and art lessons for children with disabilities. I had the honor of baking cupcakes for AMASE’s spring recital. Huge thank you to McKenna Lanter for asking me to bake for the event!
