Cashmere Chamber awards Business of the Year
The 2016 Cashmere Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year has been awarded to Sure to Rise Bakery, with owner and baker, Vince Bosket accepting the honor. A popular gathering place, serving up to 50 dozen donuts each day, Bosket an early riser, begins his days at 1:30 a.m. in the heart of Downtown Cashmere.
When the Cashmere Bakery came up for sale in 1986, Bosket saw the potential and bought the building and business. He had spent 10 years prior building his skills while working as a baker in Safeway in his hometown of Everett. Bosket is being honored for his strong community support and the impact he has made in the business community. Any given day, locals and visitors line up for a delicious treat.
He shared, “We’re still the bakery you would have gone to 40 years ago, because everything is made from scratch.” Sure to Rise Bakery is invested in the community and continues to support opportunities including donations to school events and community functions. Sure to Rise Bakery will be honored at the Cashmere Chamber of Commerce Annual Auction and Recognition Dinner March 24 at 5:30 p.m. at the Cashmere Riverside Center.
Tickets for the event are $30 per person. Tickets are on sale now at the Chamber office, or are available through a board member. “The recognition dinner is an opportunity for the community to come together to honor the contributions Sure to Rise Bakery has made to Cashmere,” said Laura Pipkin of L.C. Accounting, Board President. It is also the primary fundraiser for the Chamber. The Chamber uses the funds raised to support the Founders’ Days Festival, Scare~Crazy, Gnomes of Cashmere, Christmas in Cashmere and other marketing efforts of the Chamber of Commerce.
