ating disorders affect 11 mil-
lion people in the United
States alone. Ninety-five per-
cent of these people are between the
ages of 12 and 25, according to the
National Eating Disorders Association
(NEDA).
As a 16-year-old high school girl, I
have noticed many people at school
and in dance who could potentially be
candidates for eating disorders. When
they look in the mirror, they do not
see how skinny they truly are. They
tell themselves, "I'm fat. I need to lose
weight," and soon enough their minds
start believing these lies.
When confronted, they most often
deny it and do not admit to having
this serious disease. Some people see
that not eating (anorexia) or throw-
ing up (bulimia) are not the answers;
but others fall into the trap of eating
disorders.
I wanted to do something unique
in the community to raise money
and spread awareness for the Seattle-
based NEDA. I came up with the idea
of a bake-off when I was eating des-
sert and realized how much everyone
likes a treat. Although it is ironic that
I am organizing a bake-off for people
with eating disorders, it seems only
fitting to incorporate food in some
way.
I started with a rough draft of what
the event would be like and brought it
to Jill Rosenthal-Vinter, who teaches
Spanish and student leadership at
West Bloomfield High School. She
helped me organize all of my ideas.
My principal, Thomas Shelton, also
got involved in helping me plan it and
in advertising the Feb. 26 bake-off
throughout the school district.
Alex Risius, a WBHS junior, has
created the tickets, flyers, posters and
other decorative items, as well as get-
ting donations and volunteers to bake.
The event will be held from noon-3
p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, in the WBHS
cafeteria. Tickets are $5 and each des-
sert is $1.
Volunteers will bake enough items
for judging and to be sold to those
attending the event, who will be able
to vote on their favorite item in each

category. Winners of each category
receive a prize. Their dessert will be
judged by John Somerville, chef at the
Lark Restaurant in West Bloomfield
and a contestant on TV's Top Chef,
and Jay Gundy, the chef from Cafe
Via in Birmingham. The judges will
decide the overall winner.
So far, local prize donations have
come from Stone's Jewelry, Yoz Yogurt,
Sposita's Ristorante, Powerhouse Gym,
Sports Club, HoMedics, Champps
Americana, Cookies by Design,
Diamond Bakery, Dakota Bread,
Complaisant and Jewish Senior Life,

Emery's Creative Jewelry in
Farmington Hills and the Henry Hotel
in Dearborn.
We have already raised $2,600

Southfield and others.
