Ironically, yesterday at The Rich House I made comment about how blessings are returned to you. I did not know how I would be blessed today. At my jobsite in the past few weeks, several raffles have been held to raise funds to support the team of my fellows workers in the Walk for Lupus Now that is to be held in the ATL this Saturday at Piedmont Park. For the raffles, many dishes were donated as prizes. For the Grand Finale, I purchased 50 entries for $10.
Not long before the gathering to pull the winner today, I began working on a support ticket that took longer than expected. I did not expect to win I just bought the tickets to support, so I continued working. To my surprise, I got a call to "get in here, you won".
The Grand Finale prize consisted of a Honey Baked Ham, Squash Casserole, Potato Salad, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, Derby Pie, and a bottle of Sparkling Cider.
Now normally, we would have devoured the fixins' tonight, but since Friday is my 10th Wedding Anniversary, we are going to wait until hubby gets home in a few days. Ain't we nice?
Ten-fold? A meal to feed all of us for 10 bucks.
I have become more aware of this disease in the past few years since there are two co-workers living through it. The team is a long way from their goal, if you would like make a donation, click here. Thanks.
