    I spoke with the head Moderator who I've known for a while, ex-CANBIF'r, and he loved the idea personally posting it on Canada Craft Beer Society with the support of the other Mods. This was Saturday but still haven't seen any movement on sign ups.

    Please keep sharing and encouraging beer buddies to sign up.

    Their is looking like THREE BOXES (:astonished::flushed:) for prizes will be filled. Very generous was the brewers that signed up!

    Please keep spreading the word.

    Cheers all!

    I am in! Happy to join!

    My charity is the Simcoe Hall Settlement House.

    This charity operates helping those in need in my home town. It runs a food bank as well as diverse program for children, individuals as well as families dealing with financial and social challenges.

    Simcoe Hall Settlement House was founded in 1935 by the Women's Welfare League in response to the hardships brought on by the great depression.

    I am very excited to be apart of this, thanks to @Electros for organizing!

    I donated to The Adsum House here in Halifax, NS.

    The Adsum house has been providing shelter and assistance to women and children in need around the Halifax area since 1983.

    Thanks for organizing this @Electros

    I donated to Not Far From The Tree. Toronto’s fruit picking and sharing project. (Over 1.5 million pounds of fruit grows right here in the city every year.)

    Their mission is to harness the power of fruit trees to create healthy, resilient, sustainable and connected communities across Toronto. They help Torontonians pick and share fruit that would otherwise fall to waste while providing opportunities to connect more intimately with their neighbours, environment, and food system.

    The bounty from each fruit pick is split 3 ways: ⅓ is provided to the tree registrant, ⅓ is split amongst the picking volunteers, and ⅓ is delivered via cargo bike to one of our 36 social service agency partners, including food banks, community kitchens, supportive housing programs, and community health centres.

    I donated to Out of the Cold Community Association, here in Halifax/Kjipuktuk. OTC provides safe shelter, as well as hosting free weekly street feeds, providing showers, and lending other forms of support to those experiencing houselessness. The housing situation in Halifax, like in so many cities, is in crisis, and organizations like OTC are in constant need of support.

    I donated to the Bide a while, a local animal shelter and adoption center here in the Halifax, Nova Scotia Area. We lost our dog of 12 years this summer and we appreciate the reciprocal joy a pet and a loving home can bring. We wanted to support this shelter and its fantastic efforts in memory of Patch.

    Greetings all, new to BA and happy to participate.

    My donation was not to charity but to a family in need.

    One of my union brothers has fallen on hard times and a family members health issues has put a strain on them.

    A go fund me was set up for him to take the pressure off a little bit this holiday season.

    The fundraiser had a goal of 5k and is all ready over 11k in 3 days.

    It struck a chord with me and a lot of others.

    Well tonight is the last night for signing up... Or rather perhaps after I wake up tomorrow in case of some very late arrivals.

    Tomorrow I will commence with the raffles. One by one those eliminated will be posted.

    The last three draw are the big winners!

    Cheers all.

    I'm donating $100 to The War Amps. I usually donate $50 every year but this raffle has poked me to double up this year.
    Whenever I've seen their TV commercials with the beautiful smiling kids doning a prosthetic limb, well it just melts my heart. As an able bodied adult I am given a lessen in courage every time. All little heroes, each and every one.

    Tomorrow is the big day!

    A huge thanks to everyone for signing up.

    15 different charitable contributions supporting causes near and dear to our participants were supported raising 1500$.

    The beer boxes are coming as soon as I can get them out to the winners.

    As a repeat of how it will work, I've emailed everyone a ticket stub to your personal email identifying your BA name as well as ticket number.
    If you didn't get an email please message me ASAP.

    The draw will commence at 2:00 pm EST. I will utilize the help of my assistants (my kids :grin:).

    Each ticket drawn will be posted showing ticket number/BA name eliminating the contestant.

    The last three standing will be guaranteed a beer box with the last wining the grand prize including swag.

    See you tomorrow!

    Cheers! :beers:
