Operation Sauce Drop is just that folks are waiting until the last minute to make a donation. To summarize the fundraising effort, here's the deal:
Make a donation for Operation Sauce Drop in ANY amount up until 5 pm EST Monday, Nov 19th, and specify in the "comment" section of the order form which one of the following Carolina Hurricanes home game you'd like 2 tickets for:
Nov 21 vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Nov 23 vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
These are GREAT seats in Center Ice Premier (with access to Club Level): Section 103 Row K Seats 1 & 2, season-ticket price is $75 each (they're more expensive at the box office). Whoever makes the largest donation gets the 2 tickets for that game. The winner will be notified after 5 pm on Monday Nov 19th. More details are in my original post two days ago.
Greg and I are doing this because we had *hoped* to raise at least $300 (4 tix @ $75 each) to help send more free gift boxes to the troops - the waiting list has 90 troops on it, and we are completely out of funds to send any more gift boxes until more donations come in. The average cost to purchase and ship a gift box is $20. Of course, donations in any amount are most welcome - and we'll honor the Hurricanes tickets offer even if the total amount donated is less than face value. So how about it, faithful readers, especially those of you who are in the Triangle area: how about making a donation for Operation Sauce Drop, and maybe even go see a great hockey game in great seats! The troops will thank you for it....
PS: I'll be at the Hurricanes game tonight but will post another fundraiser update after the game if we receive any donations.
