Default Unbelievable They bought two

I donated a "we come and cook Ribs at your casa" dinner to the wife's school
Its for 24 people with sides........... Nice lil fundraiser for the Parents club
Two Families wanted it and bidding was strong
I get a call "would you do two dinners?" Yes OK
$1500 a pop Ribs and sides for 24
LOL I know its because of the school getting the money
But it sure makes us feel good
We are going to do 4 styles of Ribs
Smokey Mac and Cheese,
Kathy's Championship Baked Beans,
Green Salad and flaming Cheese bread
Cobbler A-la-Mode for Desert

Nice job Thom! We donate in the same way to several non profits around here, we have not had that happen before, but you are correct, it is a good feeling to do it.

Good job Thom. I've been donating an "Authentic Southern BBQ" dinner for 20 for our parish school's auction for the past 5 years. Great way to get your name out and develop new customers while having a great time and helping out others. Last years winning bidder never scheduled his dinner so I've let him know if he buys it again this year I'll do it for 40.

Wow, that is a nice thing you are doing! My kids go to private a school and without people like you, some schools couldn't provide what public schools do. Thanks for your donation!

Thom, the great thing about this sort of thing is that everyone wins. The school, the winning bidder, the guests invited to the event and even you come out ahead.

Congrats on the instant bump up in them going for a double dose. Something tells me this may be just the tip of the iceberg of extended events you get out of this one donation.
