I feel the same way about veal. And I just don't like seafood at all, so veal or salmon - makes no difference to me. Would you prefer the salmon, then, or do you have no vote on that part at all?

Salmon is fine. Or lots of pasta.

Oh yeah, there will be 2 pasta dishes on the buffet:
FARFALLE PRIMAVERA
Bow-tie pasta with fresh seasonal vegetables and mushrooms sautéed with
roasted garlic and extra virgin olive oil

TORTELLINE alla PANNA
Homemade cheese-filled pasta prepared in a cream sauce
with prosciutto cotto and green peas

...as well as a chicken dish. Should be something for everyone!

Agreed. The menu looks great no matter what the choice ends up being. The fried stuff always catches my eye.

Shesapirate and I are currently working on a GKTW event for NYC on August 24, 2012. You can find more details about the dinner, location, and list of attendees here:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....2963044&page=4

I am currently working on putting together some raffles for the event, the proceeds of which will be donated to GKTW. I will be preparing a list of raffle baskets and putting together baskets from any donations that people may have.

Please contact me if you have anything you'd like to donate towards the raffles. Even if it is a small item, I can combine it with other things in order to make up a basket. Sometimes little things all add up into something beautiful! I'm also accepting premade baskets, which you can either bring with you to the event, or send to me for inclusion.

Raffle List

shesapirate- coffee basket
wimpy- chocolate and fudge basket
ginamarie- ELF Cosmetics basket
mjacklyn- Alice in Wonderland large Snow Globe
The first 6 issues of WDWNT: The Magazine
Dgthree- handmade jewelry

(To be provided as donations are received)



Please note that I will need to receive all items (or be notified what you plan to bring) on or before August 20, 2012, in order to include them in the raffle and list. Please send me a PM if you need my address or if you'd like to let me know about a donation you're bringing.

Come on guys-- let's raise some more money for these children! I cannot think of a more deserving cause

Thanks for getting this thread going, Ginamarie!

I will be making a coffee-themed gift basket to raffle for the event. I may make something else as well, but that's all I know for sure right now.

Just a note -- we do appear to have space for more people to attend this event. Please see the event details in the link Ginamarie posted above and PM me if you are interested.

Thank you!

So will this be the type of raffle where we buy x tickets and can divide them up between different baskets? Or, will we buy x tickets and you will draw one from the entire lot for each basket and move on through the baskets?

Hope I didn't get too confusing with the question. I tend to do that.

Yes, it will be like a "tricky tray" -- you buy raffle tickets, and then you choose which ones/how many you want to put in the bag next to whichever basket.

I vote for Salmon and Cheesecake! Of course we will be happy with whatever is chosen so we'll go with the majority!

Also, do you guys think maybe having one or two silent auction items would be good in addition to the raffle? I was thinking maybe we could ask the podcast team if they would be willing to auction off a dining review with Kevin or something signed by the team? I think it would be great to have a few things to auction in addition to the raffle items. What do you guys think?

I think it's going to depend on how many people we have. It seems like we may be a small gathering and right now we're at three baskets, which isn't very much-- I'm hoping to talk to podcast team when they are back from CA to see what options we may have and figure out what works best once we get a few more donations.

Agree -- I like the idea of having a couple of "special" items for a silent auction in addition to the other donations that we raffle off.

Sounds like a good plan, Ginamarie!

Hey I'm so happy someone is doing a NYC dis meet!! You can count me plus one as a maybe and I'll let you know in a couple days.

I know you are having a veal and salmon debate....but I'm a vegetarian and i was wondering if they could do anything I can eat? Please let me know. Also I'm fine with either dessert.

Thanks! This should be fun!
