Just a quick update on the state of donations I have gathered for the Menu for Hope. Last glance, there was a massive $9,365 in the kitty. From my list, the degustation dinner at Interlude with matching wines (code AP18) was flying away with thirteen tickets registered to it.
In second spot is my homemade cherry vodka, with two tickets and one enquiry against it (code AP12).
But what is really shocking me is that no-one has bid for the $100 voucher from Prince Wine Store (code AP33). At the top of my blog, in the header, I invite everyone to share in some great food and wine. So who is bringing the wine I ask? I would happily bid for it myself because I know what fantastic wines they stock, but that wouldn't look to good if I won it, would it?
Christmas and the New Year is almost here and that means lots of wines to be drunk. What could be more perfect than to be able to shop for your Xmas cheer with a free wine voucher, at a shop that stocks the best? You could even use the voucher as the basis of a wine spree, putting some of your own money to it and buying something really special. That's what I'd do. Or you could get three or four very decent bottles of something. For only the cost of your donation, which you can do right here http://www.firstgiving.com/menuforhopeIII
C'mon, support the donors.
