BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: FAU) — The deadline is Monday, March 7 at 4 p.m. to order pies from Florida Atlantic University’s Arthur and Mata Jaffe Center for Book Arts, which is again teaming up with the world-famous Upper Crust bakery in Lake Worth to raise money for the center and awareness of Pi Day.
Nine-inch pies are available in 32 flavors, including peanut butter, strawberry rhubarb, German chocolate, black bottom rum, Dutch chocolate, apple and pumpkin. Cream, meringue and sugar-free pies are available. Each pie costs $20 and about $10 from each sale benefit the Jaffe Center.
This is the fourth year that the Jaffe Center and the bakery are hosting the fundraiser to recognize Pi Day, which celebrates the mathematical constant pi. Proceeds from last year’s fundraiser were used to furnish the Jaffe Center’s hand papermaking studio.
The U.S. House of Representatives designated March 14 as Pi Day in 2009, choosing three, one and four because they are the most significant digits of pi in the decimal form.
The family-owned bakery, which prides itself on the use of fresh frozen fruit and other quality ingredients, has earned the “best pies” distinction from South Florida magazines and newspapers and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal.
To place an order, call 561-297-0455, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.jaffecollection.org and click “events.” Pies must be picked up between noon and 6 p.m. on Monday, March 14 at the Jaffe Center in FAU’s Wimberly Library.
