• Holiday Bake Sale

    December 6, 2010

    Welcome to my Holiday Bake Sale to raise money for Team In Training! :mrgreen:

    As you probably know, Mal and I are training for the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon in January with Team In Training. We’ve already raised $6,500 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (thanks to many of you!), but we know we can do better. Our goal is $8,000!!

    I hope your sweet tooth is ready! Listed below are a bunch of delicious treats, contributed by CNC readers, which are ready to be bid on and shipped straight to you to enjoy! :-D

    Before you start bidding, please review the Rules & Logistics. All funds raised from the Holiday Bake Sale will go directly to Team in Training to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Please remember there is a minimum bid of $15 on each item and all bids must be emailed to CHRISTINA.HAUPERT@GMAIL.COM with the item you are bidding on in the subject line. Bids left in the comments section will not be counted.

    I will update the ‘bid section’ on the bottom of this post throughout the day, so you can see  the high bids for each item. Bidding for the Holiday Bake Sale will run from now until this evening, Monday, December 6 at 11:59 EST. I will announce the winners tomorrow.
