A sweet event that does good deeds!

Enjoy 5 desserts and benefit Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer

BRIGHTON, MA – There’s nothing better than a dessert, except when you can have five desserts and also benefit Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer! July brings a 5-course tasting event, the 4th annual Sugar Rush, on Sunday, July 16 and Monday, July 17 at Rail Stop in Brighton when top area pastry chefs will serve up delicious treats.

Conceived several years ago by Jaime Davis Schick, an instructor at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, as well as pastry chef at newly opened Rail Stop, Sugar Rush began as an evening for pastry chefs to come together and celebrate each other. “While almost everyone loves dessert, sometimes this last course to a meal is an afterthought,” says Schick. “I thought it would be fun to share an evening with my peers where dessert was the highlight – the only item on the menu,” adds Jaime. “And this year, we’ll donate the proceeds from each of the five-course tasting menus to Bakes for Breast Cancer which raises funds for breast cancer research through dessert-oriented events.”

The  pastry chefs who will share their inspiration and techniques behind their sweet concoctions are:
