It's on the internet, so it's official: Slog has now raised $20,510.66 for Northwest Harvest, helping hungry people in our state this holiday, in the Slog vs. Gawker Holiday Charity Challenge! SLOG RULES, WHILST GAWKER DROOLS!
Many, many thanks to each and every lovely one of us who has donated so far, and a special shout-out to the Lucky Seven Foundation, a magical nonprofit that put us over the $20,000 mark with its generous donation. (Do you know a magical nonprofit with bags of money lying around? Have them send some!)
Today's prize is excellent AND wonderful: an overnight getaway at Cedarbrook Lodge, a posh retreat on 18 acres of restored wetlands in Sea-Tac, including a $100 gift certificate for their Copperleaf Restaurant (chef Mark Bodinet got schooled by Thomas Keller at the French Laundry!). Slog commenter Sir Vic says, "The food is indeed excellent, and the facility is wonderful. If you are from that area, you may not even know the place existed (I sure didn't)."
Aaaaand, so you don't have to worry about driving, Uber car service will take you there and back (they've donated $100 worth of transport in one of their sleek black cars).
