The final stretch, and a few more prizes to consider
By this morning we've more than doubled last year's total -we are over $36K now. Thank you so much for everyone who helped us get here. We have just over two more days for this year's Menu for Hope, and I hope we raise even more money to support to great work of the World Food Programme.
There is a new prize to add to the already alluring list of wine prizes. Emily at Wine Monger has kindly offerred a mixed case of great Austrian wine as another prize for our campaign. The prize code for this is WB31. So, if you've always wanted to learn more about Austrian wines, this is your great chance to do it. The case will have 3 red, 6 white, and 3 half-bottles of dessert wine, featuring wines from 3 different regions, 10 different grape varieties, and 11 different wineries. This case is the ultimate gift for the connoisseur or the budding wine-novice alike. (Shipping US. only)
This is a brand new prize so you've got a great chance to win. Go get another ticket or two, perhaps, a chance like this doesn't come along very often! (Prize code WB31)
A few more people have also sweetened their proverbial pot to entice even more people to donate. Michael Ruhlman has added some charcuterie from Justin Severino to his personally inscribed book. Unfortunately this is only available for people in the US. If you're not in the US you'll just get his book.
If you've bid on or are interested in bidding on Austin's personal tour of Bangkok, you should be happy to know that he's throwing in a free dinner at Bed Supper Club in Bangkok too. (Prize code: AP44)
Also, Phil at Phnomenon is adding a seven course Khmer dinner for two at Meric, the modern Cambodian restaurant at Hotel De La Paix in Phanom Pen. (Prize code: AP17)
