This last week I was in Austin visiting family and barely had my feet touched Texas soil and my sister whisked me away to a wine-tasting fundraiser for the Angelheart Children’s Shelter — a very worthy cause indeed. The Angelheart provides emergency shelter for kids ages 0 to 18 who have been removed from their homes.
Combining a wine-tasting with a silent auction is a smart move for fund-raising, it turns out, as people (aka me) get a little aggressive with their bidding. And so it is that I find myself the winner of a very geographically specific prize — a gift certificate for a quarterly family membership to the Pflugerville Recreation Center. But my refusal-to-lose is your opportunity-to-gain, if you live in the Pflugerville area and would use this membership. Be the first commenter to say “dibs” and the gift certificate is yours. (I’ll contact you by email to get your mailing address.)
