We have to say, as fundraisers go, this one takes the cake. Or pie. Or muffin. It’s not every day you donate to a cause and receive buckets of blueberries in return.

Join the Chicago Photography Center (3301 N. Lincoln Ave.) on an outing to the aptly named Blueberry Dune Farm in LaPorte, Ind., July 29, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Cost is $25 per person, free for kids five and under (note: you’re responsible for your own transportation). Your donation not only supports CPC but also affords you all the blueberries you can pick.

Register for the event here; directions to the farm available here.

What to do with all those blueberries once you’ve picked them? You could pop them, au naturale, for their anti-oxidant benefits. But we think this no-bake cheesecake recipe is a much better idea. Bon appetit.
