Strawberry Shortcakes were all over the blacktop in South Bend


For the twenty-first year in downtown South Bend, The Cathedral of Saint James hosted Shortcakes On The Blacktop Thursday.  It is a fundraiser, to benefit St. Margaret's House, A Rosie Place, and Habitat for Humanity.  Over 24,000 shortcakes and 600 pounds of strawberries were used in the event.

The Chairman of Shortcakes On The Blacktop, Bob Sones, has an idea why this event has become so popular.  "Strawberry shortcake is delicious and that is part of it," Sones said, "but I think a lot of people do enjoy helping people who have need and all three of these charities are really worth while."
