Bagel preparations underway for KOTA fundraiser


It takes time and a lot of dough to prepare for one of KOTA territory Care and Share food drive's biggest annual events.

The Bagel Drive Thru kicks off Friday morning.

It takes four hundred pounds of flour, 27 pounds of sugar, 54 pounds of white chocolate chips and a few days to whip it all together.

Bakers at Black Hills Bagels have already pre-made 1800 white chocolate chip bagels for the fundraiser.
"This place is full of volunteers, people getting them downtown, out the door," said Stacy Stoddord, a bagel mixer.
"They'll bake at 2am [Friday] morning, then we'll get them downtown by 6 am I think," said Norman Peterson, a bagel mixer.
Paired with the bagels will be 100 gallons of Dark Canyon Coffee, which requires its own special preparation.
"Some of it is brewed at the Civic Center. Our pots aren't big enough to get all the coffee brewed," said Peterson.
And when it came to choosing a bagel flavor for the event, it was nothing but a popularity contest.
"They're pretty phenomenal, we ship them all over. [White chocolate chip are] one of our more popular ones, and they are delicious," said Stoddord.

Last year the bagel event raised $8,100 dollars for local food pantries.
The goal is to raise $10,000 this year.

The event starts runs from 6:30 to 9 am. Get in the left hand lane on St. Joseph street in front of the KOTA studios.
