From BFTP:

Bags for the People and Spacecraft have teamed up again this year for The 2nd Annual Brooklyn Pie Bake-Off Benefit.  The benefit is a yearly Brooklyn based pie bake-off that raises money for local underfunded non-profits.

There are only two rules for the Annual Pie Bake-Off Benefit. Rule One is that all pie crust must be homemade. Rule Two is that at least one ingredient must be local (“local” is defined as being grown or produced within a 200 mile radius of Brooklyn).

This year they are giving proceeds to OurGoods. OurGoods exists so that creative people can help each other produce independent projects. More work gets done in networks of shared respect and shared resources than in competitive isolation. By honoring agreements and working hard, members of OurGoods will build lasting ties in a community of enormous potential.

To wash down each slice they will have milk from Ronnybrook and beer from Brooklyn Brewery.

Entry to the event is $10 and includes free drinks and three pie slice tickets.  Additional pie slice tickets can be had for $1 each.  Bakers receive FREE admission.  Bakers are required to bring two(2) pies to ensure that there is enough to go around.  If you would like to compete, please RSVP by Friday, November 12th, with your name, pie, and local ingredient to: brooklynpiebake@gmail.com
