Announcing Menu for Hope Raffle Winners


What's up with these cups? Don't they hurt your eyes just looking at them? Try dealing with over a hundred of these, and countless little bits of paper with names written on them that had to be sorted into the proper cups. Fun, no?

No, no, these cups are not what I meant by a wicked application that will automatically do the drawing for us. No, these cups from last year's raffle are the reason we now have said piece of code, so that the kind raffle elves and I need not bother with any more of these cups. Not a one. This year, our friend Derrick of An Obsession with Food wrote a little piece of code that cleverly did away with them for us. He even published the code so those of you who are interested in that sort of thing can go check it out.

It's a great thing Derrick wrote this program for us, truly, since the tremendous support that poured into our campaign this year sold 6,000 raffle tickets. Bravo and brava to everyone involved! Together we raised $60,925.12 to support the UN World Food Programme. My head hurts just thinking about tearing out six thousand little chits of paper and writing a name on each one. It'd be time for next year's campaign by the time I'm done...

So, now, without further ado. Here are the winners........
