The cancer patient support group Gilda's Club Western New York has put out a call for entries in its annual gingerbread house contest.
Bakers have until Nov. 19 to send in registration forms, available at gildasclubwny.org.
The works of confectionary art are displayed on the weekend of Dec. 3, during the Gingerbread, Gifts and Glitz event at the group's building, 1140 Delaware Ave. They're judged on factors including originality, creativity, use of gingerbread and detail. Then they're autioned for charity. Proceeds benefit Gilda's Club programs.
Bakers are divided into students, amateurs and professionals for the contest. Cash prizes for first place range from $100 for students to $500 for professionals.
