BLOWING ROCK — SmileOn ADG, a local nonprofit, raised $17,000 for its mission by selling Moravian sugar cakes, cookies and other Dewey’s Bakery baked goods during the holiday season.
Dewey’s Bakery — based out of Winston-Salem — allows community groups to open satellite locations during the holiday season. During that time, 35 percent of all in-store proceeds benefit the groups operating the satellite locations. Shoppers could support SmileOn ADG by shopping in-store, online or curbside.
SmileOn ADG thanked Tanger Outlets, Dewey’s Bakery and the High Country community for their overwhelming support of the Dewey’s Bakery Holiday Store. The nonprofit worked in partnership with Ronnie Mark and his management team at Tanger Outlets in Blowing Rock to operate the store from Nov. 14-Dec. 24, 2020.
