Win Me For a Night!

Yes, that's WIN, not wine. I’ve donated my services to Menu For Hope, a worldwide food and wine bloggers’ fundraising effort. Now, in its fourth year, Menu For Hope was founded by Pim at Chez Pim. This year’s proceeds will be directed through the UN World Food Programme to benefit hungry farmers in Lesotho, Africa. Every ten dollars you donate gets you a “raffle ticket.” Each ticket can then be designated toward the prize of your choice – mine, natch! – and a computer program takes care of picking the winners. Specific instructions for entering can be found at the bottom of this post. So, on to the prize in question!

Private Sommelier Services Provided by David McDuff (Prize Code WB23)
My donation consists of private sommelier services, provided by yours truly, for a party of up to six wine and food loving adults. I will bring an eclectic array of small farm wines – some from my own cellar – matched to the menu or theme for your event. I will pour for you and discuss the selected wines throughout the course of the evening. I am willing to do this anywhere in the greater Philadelphia area and am open to travel, if expenses are covered, throughout the Washington, DC to New York, NY corridor. The event can be held in your home or in a restaurant (if you’re willing to pick up the bill for my dinner and any corkage fees). My contribution of wine and sommelier services is valued at over $500 but you can have a chance to “win me for a night” for as little as $10. Of course, the more tickets you buy, the greater your chances of winning and the more you help to support a fantastic cause. Prize code: WB23.

No procrastinating now – just donate! And be sure to check out the rest of the donations from throughout wine blogdom at Alder Yarrow’s Vinography.
