Puppies and Pastries

If you've ever purchased one of those "Porn for Women" wall calendars featuring hunky guys cooking, cleaning, and offering to share the remote, then "Real Men Bake for the Rescues" is your kind of event. Monday, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Sundy House (106 S. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach), about 30 local celebrities, all men, will offer up delicious baked goods for your judgment and the good of canines in need of homes. That's right: pastries and puppies. What more could you ask for, really? Sundy House will provide unlimited hors d'oeuvres in addition to the dozens of baked goodies competing to win the two-foot-tall trophy. Guests will be given a ticket at the door that they will bestow on the pastry that wins their best in show. Celebrity chefs include District 4 County Commissioner Chip La Marca; veterinarians Dr. Mickey Axelband and Dr. Dan Selvin; and Daniel Katzenberg, head chef and owner of Cafe Cocoanut Catering (424 Santa Fe Road, West Palm Beach). Tickets cost $15 in advance or $20 at the door. To purchase tickets or volunteer, call Sandra Dezelan Axelband at 954-588-7045, or visit dezzyssecondchance.com.
