Bloggers have ponied up the prizes, which range from hampers of locally produced goodies, chocolates from all over the world, private sommelier for a night, books and more books and of course dining experiences.
The West Coast Host is Sam of Becks & Posh, who has been providing frequent updates and of course giving the lowdown on all the west coast goodies. How is this relevant to LA? There are quite a few LA bloggers that are participating by volunteering their goodies for the raffle as well as promoting the project. The virtual raffle tickets are only $10 and there are many packages that have few entries (which boosts your odds).
Most of those involved are in the Bay Area but our local donors include:
– Matt of Matt Bites with a basket of goodies from Valley Produce Company in Australia (crackers, fig/almond pyramid, chocolate panforte & truffle infused honey)
– Erin of Erin’s Kitchen with Arabesque by Claudia Roden and $25 Penzey’s Gift Certificate
You can enter for any prize, but read over the descriptions carefully to see if it can be shipped to you and/or any dates for redeeming. (No, I didn’t donate anything, but I did do a roundup of candy-themed prizes.)
