We've got 57 hours left in the campaign, and we really feel like we will make our goal. I want to thank each of you for the kind notes of encouragement and for supporting this project from the beginning.
Thanks to Heather Cook at Shindigs, we have prepared the following press release and will be making announcements about the collaborative chef dinner throughout the day. There are a very limited number of tickets available so we hope this will encourage people to go ahead and get their tickets through the campaign, which will be all we need to make our goal. If you know anyone interested in foodie events, please let me them know about the dinner.
I thought I'd include the press release below to keep you guys in the loop.
Again, thank you so much for all of your support, sharing, encouragement and positive vibes.
