Prizes Prizes Prizes!

cwb1By now, you’ve all heard about our First Annual Holiday Social.

We’re hoping to raise a bunch of money for Interfaith Hospitality and we’ve rounded up some serious sponsors to sweeten the pot.

At the event, we’ll be selling raffle tickets for $1 – so bring some cash! The great thing about our raffle is that YOU get to decide which prizes you want to be in the running for so you can increase your odds the more tickets you purchase. And each and every dollar you give goes directly to IHN – no middle man or administrative costs – cold hard cash put to work doing good. Giving – it’s what this season is all about, right. But that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve some cool stuff to reward you for all your generosity!

Take a look at these great prizes up for grabs:

  1. […] Everyone is invited and your $10 donation benefits the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Northern Kentucky. On top of that, raffle tickets will be sold for $1 for a crack at winning some sweet prizes. […]

  2. I hope who ever wins has a wonderful Dream Dinners experience. It is the ultimate buy in bulk and save way to have a home cooked dinner and does cost less than buying the same ingredients at a grocery store. It is also very eco friendly, so much less packaging when you buy in bulk. We actually have children on our tasting panels; it is amazing to see what kids will really eat. We put kids in a box when we only feed them “white foods”. Don’t miss our new Dream Rewards program, where you will receive gifts and other specials. You can get even more ideas on my blog Take care.

  3. I just sent a message about this out to the New Media Cincinnati group on Facebook.

  4. I would like to donate copies of Adapting to Web Standards:
