Okay, time to report the results of my drawing from my Charlotte Heart Walk fund raising effort. I raised $130 overall, of which $25 was seed money from me, and $105 came from folks who bought $5 ‘raffle tickets.’
Many, many, many thanks to everyone who helped me raise some cash for heart research.
I entered each person’s name into a list, listing them multiple times if they bought more than one ticket. Then I went to RANDOM.ORG and used their “List Randomizer” to sort the list. Here is the result:
_There were 21 items in your list. Here they are in random order:_

As you can see, Christina is the winner! I will contact Christina to discuss what she wants me to make for her. I’ll of course blog about it on my knitting blog!
This year I’ll be walking in the Charlotte Heart Walk.
I’m a terrible fund-raising person, so the only money in my account so far is the $25 worth of seed money that I donated. So I’m stealing an idea from Melinda Steele-StCyr!
For every $5 you give through my page (link below), I’ll enter your name into a drawing… donate $20 and your name goes in four times… $30 – six times… you get the idea. After the walk I’ll do a random drawing to choose the winner of a custom pair of socks or a hat or a pair of mittens (or anything else [small] of a type I’ve made… stalk my Ravelry projects page) using worsted-weight or heavier yarn. Your choice of fiber and color …up to $30 in materials. If it’s in my stash, even better!
The Greater Charlotte Heart Walk will be held on September 17th, 2011 Charlotte, NC, so you have a little more than two weeks to donate. If you’re the only person who donates, you get a custom-knit item (for you or as a gift), possibly for less than the cost of the yarn. If I get a few entries, your chances are still great!
Be sure to put in the comments that you’re entering the drawing for the knitted item!
Thanks very much in advance for your support of this cause.
I’m walking and raising money to help reduce death and disability from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20% by 2020.
I’m joining the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk to promote physical activity to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Please support me in helping to reach this lifesaving goal by giving a donation today.
