So… I’ve had my coffee… (unfortunately not the kick-ass coffee I won in the raffle gift basket from RocketFuelCoffee.com because my grinder is broken…) but I digress.
I’ve had my coffee. My 10am call is actually 10am Vancouver time (yay!) and now I can take a moment or two to SHOW you what HoHoTO was like. Unfortunately not my photos since my camera stayed in the bag all night while I wrangled Raffle Prizes.
My HoHoTO Raffle Booth Babes! The most effective raffle wranglers, working like clockwork together to do 2-4 prize draws every 10 minutes from 8pm-10:30pm. AND hand out prizes to the winner. Yes, we hustled and they stayed by my side ALL NIGHT! (portrait photos used with explicit permission from Rannie Turingan)
<and Wendy who seems to have evaded Rannie’s camera yet again.. hmmm>
Now, I don’t think we actually did a team shot this year, so here’s a little love for the folks who generated, and waded through thousands of tweets & emails to make HoHoTO happen… literally, thousands! Though some occasionally digressed into tangential topics like Sharpies, feet massaging concubines and cascading arithmetic (+1, +1000, +∞)
And here is the cheque! Over $48,000!!! With Fuse Network’s offer of donating $1 for every pound of food donated to HoHoTO and tonight’s Hangover Twitter Auction, we’ll probably break $50,000! Did I say WOW yet?
And lots of people had their cameras out, so here’s what’s on flickr tagged w/ HoHoTO
