    Raffle: $100 gift card to Capital Grille Steakhouse, 1 in 20 chance w/a $10 entry

    Hi BF Family,

    I was given permission by a supermod to host a raffle, all proceeds go to a stand up BF member, Mykel in need of a hand. I first caught wind of Mykel's situation in a JK thread. JK, KyEnglish and others were trying to do their part to help Mykel. I hope that if you get a chance to read this, that you will be able to participate in the raffle or help out Mykel via his go fund me page or pp account directly.

    While most of us have more knives than we know what to do, I personally don't want to lose sight of all the great people that I've been able to interact with on the forum. This situation just reminds me that there are real people out there in the world behind our BF names. Everyone finds out in a short time that it's the people that we come back for on BF and not just the knives.


    Here's the JK thread where I came to be aware of what was going on: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...-Help-A-Friend

    As background, Mykel was hit with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneurapathy (CIPD) in June and it left him disabled and unable to work. He's progressing towards getting the proper long term help but with the bureaucracy to make that happen who knows how long it will take. In the meantime his healthcare has made him unable to work and he is behind on bills.

    THE RAFFLE DETAILS!

    $10 paypal entry only 20 spots so you have a 1 in 20 chance of winning. Each $10 gets you one entry, enter as many times as you want.

    THE PRIZE!
    $100 Gift Card for any Capital Grille Steakhouse in the US, for a complete list of locations you can visit: http://www.thecapitalgrille.com/locations/all-locations



    HOW TO ENTER!
    It's $10 entry pp (ff, preferred) to my pp, remember all proceeds go to Mykel. Only 20 slots are available. I'll call the raffle when all 20 slots get filled and I will keep a running list of the entrants along the way.

    Your name will be put into a hat and my wife will randomly select the winner. I will mail out the gift card to you via USPS priority. Good luck to all and I hope the winner enjoys Capital Grille. I've been to several locations many times and the ones around NYC are a go to for business lunches. Please check that there is a location close enough to you that you can go to as there are quite a few around the country.

    Lobster salad.jpg

    I put some cash in for the card and really hoping to entice the forum to basically do a match for Mykel! Going to try to entice you all with some food photos!

    In NYC if I have to do an steakhouse for work in the evenings quite often it is Del Frisco's or Capital Grille. Sometimes I have to go here for lunch meetings. But there's is no way that I ever try to have a giant steak for lunch as that's down for the count territory after the meal.

    That said if you like shellfish the lobster salad in a lemon dressing is phenomenal! They only serve it during lunch time though.

    PS Thanks CF1969!

    Here's a shot of their bone in club steak. Brasserie 8 and 1/2 makes my favorite tomahawk ribeye steak but if I go to CG it's usually a ribeye or the Kona strip steak which is a steak dusted in coffee rub.

    Hi Everyone,
    The entries slowed down so I'm going to call the raffle early. The good news for those who played is that each entry has a one in ten chance of being the winner.

    I'm really glad everyone who participated did. And were able to raise some awareness. I hope that we each are able in our own ways can go out into the world and help our fellow man. We all need a little helo sometime.

    As you can see there were ten slots covered so we were able to raise $100, which I'm sending to Mykel right after this post via pp.

    I'm going to print and cut out the raffle slots and will have a winner called by this evening or earlier. The winner gets $100 gift card to Capital Grille. Thanks!

    Chris
