Christmas Outreach Tea on December 5th!
Join me for a little pre-Christmas festivities on Facebook! In the tradition of The Great Christmas Bowl I'm hosting an Outreach Christmas Tea on Facebook December 5th! I'll be sharing some of my favorite holiday recipes, Christmas tunes, and chatting with you about your plans for Christmas.
As always, there will be prizes and a sneak peak at my two new books Sons of Thunder and the latest PJ Sugar novel, Double Trouble. And of course outreach! (check out what one TGCB reader was inspired to do! How cool! You can get involved to.)
If you've been following along at The Great Christmas Bowl website – you know about the contest we've been running for the last few months. People have been sharing their favorite recipes and memories and we'll be turning that into a downloadable cookbook that will be available to purchase during the party for $5! (It's not too late to submit your own favorite memories & recipes, go here to do so!) 100% of the money raised will be going to the Cook County (my community) Food Shelf, and The Grand Marais Salvation Army Service Unit's "Merry Christmas for all" Outreach Program. It's a local program for our community of 1300 that helped 55 families last year "multiply the joy of Christmas" by providing food and gifts to the financially challenged.
The cook book will be available all month long – so tell your friends to swing by and purchase a copy and help spread the joy of the season! Hope to see you at the party! Oh, and help us spread the word by inserting this button on your blog or website! Just email Amy (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know you posted the button and she'll put your name into the hat to win a $20 gift certificate to Amazon!
