Winners of the Menu For Hope VI Charity Raffle

menuforhope.jpgYou folks are phenomenal. Thank you so much for your support. With your generous donations of both prizes and bids for them, we raised $70,900 for the UN World Food Programme. That's a truly remarkable amount of money, and a testament to the passion and generosity of you, my readers, and the blogging community as a whole.

If your name appears in the list below as one of the winners, I will be contacting you over the weekend with instructions on how you can claim your prize (I will put you in touch with the folks that offered it, and you can coordinate).

For those who offered prizes, I will also be in touch to let you know how to proceed.

Congratulations to all the winners, and I hope you enjoy the fruits of your generosity. If you happened to bid on other prizes besides wine related ones, you can find the master list of prize winners at Chez Pim.
