The Tomato Nation Fall Classic: Winter Meetings

Submitted by on December 29, 2010 – 9:49 PM2 Comments

If you thought I’d forgotten all about the TN Fall Classic, well, I’ve got news for you: I…kind of did. Okay, not really, but other things (the studio, the N Candy AA, the painting project that had the contractor calling Far Thill “the Hotel California” by the time it finally ended) got in the way for awhile.

No longer! I mailed checks this morning to the Jackie Robinson Foundation and Pitch In For Baseball, each for $2,643 — amazing amazing job, you guys. And you raised 10K for Donors Choose, too. Well done.

Stay tuned for Ze Beeg Mysterious Donors Choose/TN Project Of ’11, theme and dates TBD — and for prizing for the TNFC! If you entered the contest, watch your email and get ready to win some loot.
