Sweet contest raises dough

BEAVER CREEK – If you were Santa, or mountain folk in April for that matter, what would your fantasy gingerbread house look like?Bernie Oswald and Brian Williams of Sonnenalp hit the nail on the head when they placed a marzipan Santa sipping out of a coconut drink in the middle of his multilevel gingerbread beach house on the ocean. It won them first place for the second year in a row at Beaver Creek’s Fantasy Gingerbread House competition Friday. The competition is a fund-raiser for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), a program that recruits, trains and supervises community members to serve as advocates for abused and neglected children in the 5th Judicial District of Colorado. At the end of the contest, the gingerbread houses are auctioned off to raise funds for CASA. Sonnenalp’s “Santa’s Holiday Fantasy” collected $475, and the whole event raised $15,000.
