EX_gloriagemmaExeter Job Corps Center’s culinary creations warmed the hearts of attendees to the Gloria Gemma: Flames of Hope A Celebration of Life fundraising event.

Exeter students have lent their baking skills to Gloria Gemma’s cancer research fundraiser for 8 years and have raised almost $20,000 through their efforts. For this year’s event, students, with the help of Advanced Culinary Instructor Chef Mark Bennison, baked Baklava cheesecake, Oreo cheesecake, Heath Bar cheesecake, blood orange blossoms, triple chocolate mousse and chocolate raspberry hazelnut mousse. Students also enjoyed other event attractions such as WaterFire, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk and fireworks.

Keep whipping up those skills, X-Men!
