The Raid for the Cure event is complete, and an amazing time it was!

It’s going to take some time for a nice wrap-up post with pictures, but in the meantime, I know what you want to see… the results of the raffle!

The winning names have been drawn, from out of a hat, by our son Alex, and here are the list of winners, IN ORDER:

  1. Mandi/Thinathwen of Khadgar-US – Sidhe Devils Gone Wild podcast guest appearance!
  2. Matt Cristantello – Handmade clay model of a pink Resto Tree Druid!
  3. Megan/Almeara of Auchindoun-EU - One very pink plush Moonkin!
  4. Megan/Cynnammon – World of Warcraft TCG Loot Card, the Ogre Pinata!
  5. Debbie Scott – Handmade scarf with the emblem of the Horde!
  6. Rachel Boone – Ceramic coffee mug from the Sidhe Devils Gone Wild store!
  7. S. K. Graham – Handmade scarf with the emblem of the Alliance!
  8. Seth/Wemic of Kargath-US – A finished piece of artwork, something of a feline nature by Tami Moore!
  9. M. (name withheld upon request)-  shirt from the BBB store!
  10. Nick Laplante – A choice of the Panderan Monk or Mini KT non-combat pet.
  11. John Long – A choice of the Panderan Monk or Mini KT non-combat pet.
  12. Jason (Lonty) Ashworth – A choice of the Panderan Monk or Mini KT non-combat pet.

The order of this list has special significance.

Why?

Because there were two ways we saw to draw names for prizes… assign a prize to each winner at random, OR, to draw names in order, and let each winner, in the order drawn, pick their prize from what is available.

We’ve chosen to allow people, in the order their name was drawn, to pick their prize from what is available when we reach their number. The reason for this is that the types of prizes available can be very personal. There are all sorts of prizes, some specific to Alliance or Horde, some specific to moonkin or leafy druids, there are in-game pets people might already have or really want, that sort of thing. 

So, rather than go down the list and assign prizes to winners, we will be emailing each winner, in order, asking them which of the prizes remaining they would like to choose as their prize.

Yes, this WILL draw out the process of awarding prizes. Hopefully, we will get fast responses to the emails.

I truly hope that this will result in happier winners.

So, Mandi/Thinathwen of Khadgar-US, you are our grand prize winner, and I am emailing you in two seconds to congratulate you, to ask for mailing info, and to find out… what will YOU pick?

Congratulations to all of the winners!

And as a reminder, here is a list of:

    Thanks to all the organizers! It was a blast :) I posted some pics on Facebook that I *think* everyone can see (http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/album.php?aid=343655&id=884940316&ref=nf). Honestly, this was one of the most well put-together events I have ever attended, with only one minor glitch when the alliance people were late. HA! Too much fun. And congratulations to all the winners!

    Embarassing though it is to admit I got my time zones wrong and arrived in Teldrassil an hour late so just my thoughts went with you. Hope it went well and no ganking!

    Kattrinsaa, thanks to everyone’s incredibly generous contributions, the Raid for the Cure amassed $1652.50 as of the end of the raid event today

    It was a fantastic event, great to be part of. I was there till the very end (when no one was left but Starys, Silverbolt, Ryga and myself partying on the roof), so I got a fair amount of footage that I’ve bunged together into a rough video.

    I did two versions because I couldn’t decide which soundtrack I liked best.
    Shorter one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vK8H0tfP5y0 (I actually wanted to use this artist’s “The Cow Song”, but didn’t have a good copy of it so I settled for his Dugong Song instead)
    and the extended mix (with a different and slightly less silly soundtrack!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofO-RWcB82w.

    Hey BBB,

    One of my guild members – Kaiddi on your server, has the event on video. We play on Oceanic server, Nagrand, and hail from Down Under and New Zealand, mostly. We were happy to attend and wish Julie the best of luck. Thanks for coordinating this awesome event.

    Wow! I am really impressed! I saw some of the screenshots from the “race” and it looked amazing! Getting tears in my eyes when I see all the good people doing something for a good cause!

    Couldnt attend because of me playing on a EU server, but I send my thoughts to you guys!

    Many bearhugs from Tesaki, feral druid since 2005!

    Thank you for making/posting that video. I had such a total blast on that run and I really admire how a guild stepped up to do something for a guildie of theirs, the video makes a great little souvenir.
