Baking contest to benefit Second Chance shelter

NORMAN — The Cleveland County Bar Association will have sweet treats for everyone on Valentine’s Day for their second annual Justice is Sweet baking contest.

The baked goods will be available from noon to 2 p.m. Friday in the Cleveland County Commissioners’ Room, second floor of the county courthouse.

Admission is free, but everyone is asked to vote for their favorite treat by placing donations in that entry’s collection jar, said Alissa Hutter, Cleveland County Bar Association president.

T-shirts to commemorate the event will be available for purchase. All proceeds will be donated to Second Chance Animal Sanctuary, Hutter said.

“We wanted to give back to the community, and it’s a great excuse to eat candy,” she said.

Last year had about 30 entries. The event raised more than $1,000. This year, organizers hope it will be even more, Hutter said.

“It’s something kind of fun to get everybody in the bar association involved and it was something that turned into a friendly competition,” Hutter said.

The person with the most money in their tip jar at the end of the afternoon will be the winner.
