High Dollar Ribs!

I donated 8 racks of ribs to an auction at my church. Fully cooked, vacuum packed and frozen. To benefit the building fund.

They were sold for $55 per rack. I would have been happy with $20 per rack.

I only wish I could sell them for that much!


Just thought I would share.


Also, my wife and I gave a dinner for 6 at our house. Fillet Mignon and bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp. It sold for $255.

It just goes to show that if you feed people for charity, they open their wallet.

There were also several pies and cakes that went for well over $100.

Re: High Dollar Ribs!

Very nice. For $255 you better not disappoint anybody. I think that would put too much pressure on me.

Sounds like the Lord has bestowed financial blessings on that particular group of pew warmers

Re: High Dollar Ribs!

That is really great Gary. It must make you feel proud to be able to help out the cause like that. It kind of elevates things beyond just cooking for family. Vermin also makes a good point but I doubt that anyone at your church would be less than pleased with your contribution.

Re: High Dollar Ribs!

What a great way to make a contribution and have a good time while doing it. I'll bet the folks who bought the ribs won't be disappointed either.

Re: High Dollar Ribs!

Found out this morning that the auction in whole was a HUGE success. Raised over $50K for our building fund.

Yes... some in the congregation are blessed more than others of us. Although, I will say, most of those with the larger blessings are very generous in their giving.

eh... I ain't worried. These are good people that are making a donation to the church. Besides, just being in my wife and my presence should be worth most of that money.

If you feed them.... They will donate! That's my motto.

Re: High Dollar Ribs!

Good deeds like that could get a person out of purgatory a few hundred years early.

Great job Gary. Cooking for the church, or less fortunate, makes me feel good.
