TourneyCentral announced today that they have contracted Charm City Cakes (Food Network’s Ace of Cakes) to produce a showpiece cake for their exhibit booth for the 2008 NSCAA Convention January 17-19, 2008 in Baltimore, Maryland.
“Charm City Cakes is right there in Baltimore,” says Gerard McLean, Principle at TourneyCentral. “We like to support the local economy when we do a trade show and this was just the perfect opportunity.”
The cake will stand about two feet tall and feature a pair of goalie-gloved hands reaching up to grab a soccer ball in flight. According to Mary-Alice at Charm City Cakes, it will be a “show-stopper.”
TourneyCentral intends to raffle off the cake Saturday at noon to one lucky attendee who has put his or her business card in the bowl at their booth. They will also have samples of the cake for the Thursday night open of the exhibit hall.
“We hope the lucky recipient will in turn donate it to one of the local soccer organizations in Baltimore, but if they want to take it home with them, that would be fine too,” adds McLean.
TourneyCentral will be showing at the NSCAA in their own expanded booth, 2813. Charm City Cakes can be found on the Internet at www.charmcitycakes.com.
