The Golden Garden Party


On June 4th, just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, Ron and Rachel Clearfield will be hosting their 10th annual Golden Garden Party -- an inspiring fundraiser for TRPF's Food for People program. Everyone is invited. And that means YOU, even if you live halfway around the world. If you can't get to Asheville physically, no worries -- you can get their metaphysically or, should I say virtually. How? By entering the Golden Garden Party Raffle.

As of today, there are 25 items to be raffled off -- for a total of $2,000 worth of goodies. And more items are being added daily. Raffle tickets are $5, or three for $10. And, since a friend of the project is offering a matching donation, every ticket you buy will trigger another donation for that same amount.

If you have a winning ticket, you get to choose what gift you want. You do not need to be present to win, but you will need to submit your top three preferred items. More about the raffle here.

There Is a Contest I Want to Enter

There is a contest I want to enter, but I cannot find a pen. I want to win something big when my name gets called, mount the stage and, in a heroic attempt to speak before tears have their way, thank God and anyone else who might be listening to this moment of pure exaltation.

Words rise within me, bubbles from a newly opened bottle of champagne, but I say nothing, stunned. I just stand there. Grinning.

A Lulu of a Contest

OK, it's contest time!

I just found out from my publisher ( that they are sponsoring a contest for their authors. It's a simple deal. The author who sells the most copies of his/her book in January wins $1,500. Second place is $750. Third place is $500.

All you need to do is buy a copy for $14.97 + shipping. If I win, I'll donate the prize money to TPRF, a non-profit humanitarian foundation. Everyone wins! You in?

Buy the book
