I'm still not sure. Mav has to suddenly work Saturday (maybe) childcare has mostly fallen through so I'm scrambling, and baking. I'll need to be there first thing to drop off cookies but I'm still not sure what's going to happen. Give me a few days and I'll try to figure it out. If everyone could list availability that'd be great.

Thank you Ange. And thank you Emi. I've got childcare sorted, waiting to hear if Mav's working for sure. It's nice to know that you've got it covered. Prepping more dough tonight and baking tomorrow.

Woo!  They came in earlier than expected, so I'm glad.  My apologies for them not being individually wrapped... honestly for this kind of event I was just not sure what kind of packaging would be best.  They may be better loose until someone makes their selections, then bag 'em right there... not sure.

This does make it easier to taste-test though... you know... quality control and all...that's what I tell myself anyway.   ;)

I hope it goes well tomorrow, good luck all!  Every time these events come up it makes me regret living on the other end of the freakin' country...

Ange, the truffles are beautiful and they smell amazing. I will post pictures and let you know how they're received. I'm sure they will go quickly. Thank you so much!

I consider this event very successful. Taking card payments was a huge success. With some minor technical glitches costing us 2 donations we brought in $76 dollars in credit card donations. The grand total for the event is $430.85.

Emimonster's cookies sold out. They were beautiful. Ange, Jerry's grandma wants the recipe for the mounds truffles. You sent us a ton! I'm going to see how they freeze and take them to the Prepax game night/drop off.
We had a lot of great comments from enforcers. The best one was all of them talking about how much they prefer to work a line after we hit it. One enforcer said he can't get them to clear a fire lane so he's started telling them they have to keep the aisle clear for the cookie brigade. I have some pictures that I'll try to post, but it might not be until tomorrow or Monday.

Truffle balls were so fricken good. I went back to donate twice cause I needed seconds as did my husband.

Woot!  Pictures look great Emi!  I guess I could post the Mounds Truffle recipe under the recipe thread!  XD

Updating here instead of creating a new thread. We brought in $610 for Child's Play and another $180 for the brigade from the cookie tins. Thanks to Emi, Amloca and Sam for their help. I know many more of you are interested. If they keep this format we could bring more people on. Let me know if you are interested or want to take a stab at running it yourself!
