*** 2007 TOTAL DONATION to Second Harvest ***

O.k. are you ready?

Here is what we donated in the past:
$2114.05 to Second Harvest in 2006
$2105.06 to Second Harvest in 2005
$3402.51 to Team H.O.P.E. in 2004
$2788.37 to Second Harvest in 2003
All money donated to 20 different families in 2002

Remember when I posted because I was concerned that we might reach an all time LOW record this year? Well all of you stepped it up and guess what?

WE BEAT LAST YEARS TOTAL!


I'm still waiting on checks to clear, but assuming they do, our grand total to give to America's Second Harvest this year will be:

$2182.33

Lip Balms accounted for $258 of this total donation! Thank you so much Laura for all your help with the Lip Balms this year. Great job!!

Thank you to all our buyers and sellers this year. You have each given from the heart and made some less fortunate people very happy this year as they sit down to a hot home cooked meal.

How much food will our donation buy?

43,646.6 POUNDS of FOOD!

Here's a big hug to each of you who participated in this years BoB Holiday Benefit Auction!



12/8 Update from post #28: Total sent: $2192.28
