Thank you for everyone who attended or volunteered for our 2019 Depressed Cake Shop event. It was one of our most successful Depressed Cake Shops since we began this fundraiser 7 years ago.

Special thanks to Optimism Brewing Company (1158 Broadway, Seattle, WA 98122) for their beautiful space!

What is Depressed Cake Shop?

Every October, NAMI Seattle holds our popular Depressed Cake Shop: A community event where attendees can purchase treats made by dedicated and talented local bakers. These confections are gray and dull on the outside, but on the inside they are brightly colored – and, of course, all around tasty!

Why gray? The gray, dark outside of these treats represents depression. On the inside, the rainbow colored or other bright colors symbolize hope. All proceeds from this event support NAMI Seattle’s programs.
