She has also put together a handy bargain hunters guide to prizes available. You have until tomorrow morning EST to make your donation at the Firstgiving page.

Over $86,000 have been raised so far; let’s see how close we can get to $100,000!

Menu for Hope 4Tonight at midnight Pacific time is last call for this year’s Menu for Hope. I’m pleased to see the total amount raised is $70,000 as I post this but there is still time to participate if you haven’t had the chance yet.

Thanks to all who have bid on my prize of 3 bottles of the Roussanne I’m making with the Winecast Crushpad group. If you want to try to get those bottles, just go here and make a donation referencing WB17 in the notes field. You best do this soon as there are only a few hours to go.

Menu for Hope 4 Nears $25,000

by Tim Elliott on December 15, 2007

Menu for Hope 4 PrizeIn the first 5 days of the Menu for Hope 4 campaign, almost $25,000 has been raised from over 600 benefactors. That’s a great start and I’m hoping to see a lot more donations made this weekend.

I also noticed no one has made a donation to win my lot of 3 bottles of our open-source Roussanne blend. For only $10 per chance you’ll get 3 of the first bottles off the line after it’s finished aging next summer. I’ll be happy to sign and/or personalize each bottle before shipping them to your door. They would make a great gift or complement your Thanksgiving table next year.

If you’d like to donate, make sure you use code WB17 for your chance to win this rare wine. It’s fast and easy, just click here to go to the page at Firstgiving. There are a bunch of other great wine prizes that need some love, as well.
