Claxton Fruitcake Sales

Claxton Fruit CakeCivitan's other important fundraiser involves the sale of Claxton Bakery's fruitcakes. This partnership began in 1951 when Tampa Civitan club (#0202) member Earl Carver enjoyed the cake so much that he suggested they be sold nationally as a fundraiser.

Each year during the holiday season, local Civitan clubs sell millions of pounds of fruitcake.

The proceeds from these sales benefit Civitan International's work with developmentally disabled persons.
