Jeez, oh man. This campaign's been going for four days -- FOUR -- and already we are closing in on the funds raised during the entire campaign last year. As of this writing, we have raised $14,290 $15,450! You guys are amazing!
And there are still a few prizes straggling in. Kind of like this one. Because when you're trying to pin down a brilliant mad scientist, sometimes it takes a few days.
Gastronomie Prize #2: A Hangar One/St. George Spirits Custom Distillation with Lance Winters. Retail value = Priceless
Maybe you think I'm being coy by calling this prize priceless. But really, it is!
Lance Winters, evil genius of St. George Spirits (distillers of Hangar One Vodka) is opening his lab to one lucky winner. You will be granted the opportunity to visit the distillery and distill with Lance and the crew an ingredient of your choice (based on seasonality and the availability of ingredients, of course).
In the very same still where Hangar One's Alchemist Series begins, Lance will create a designer spirit just for you -- a one-of-a-kind, small-batch, craft-distilled liquor that will impress the pants off your friends.
This winner of this prize will want to be local to the San Francisco Bay Area, or want to arrange a trip around the distillation date (to be agreed upon based on ingredient selected and availability).
Please email me with any questions you might have about this prize.
If you want to bid on this item, PLEASE go to the donation page and bid a minimum of $10 for one raffle ticket. Specify prize number UW48 for the Custom Distillation in the "Personal Message" section of the form, and PLEASE make sure to allow us to see your email address so we can contact you if you win.
Raffle winners will be announced on January 15, 2007 at Chez Pim.
