I was downloading some pictures from my camera and found the ones I took on St. Patrick’s Day for our $50 giveaway on facebook. I had never done a random drawing before and wasn’t quite sure how to take 361 fans and put them in a hat. I had a few gimmicky ideas, like finding the fan with the most letters from “Hazelnut Kids” in their name. My voice of reason, Bridgett, who had just returned from her Statistics class, reminded me that the drawing should be random and then proceeded to explain what that really meant. Well, there is not much fun about a true, random drawing, so I did the next best thing and had my six year old choose a number between 1 and 361. He chose his lucky number 8! He didn’t have a good reason for 8 being his lucky number, but I went with it! We then took our list of fans, omitted all owners, employees, and spouses, and selected our 8th fan which turned out to be Ronessa Butler of Traverse City! Ronessa was thrilled and within hours of receiving her GC code had placed her order with some lovely items for her soon to be 3 and 5 year olds. What fun! Stay tuned for future giveaways, and if you aren’t a fan on facebook yet, please consider.
