My Very First Contest! and It's Naughty!

If you've been a reader for a while, you've probably noticed that I've never held a give away on my blog. It's really not the reason I started blogging. So I guess you'd have to call me a contest virgin. Why would I suddenly decide to get on the Give Away Bandwagon, you ask? Because I discovered something so fun, so naughty, that I just couldn't resist!
The Greater York Chamber of Commerce here in southern Maine, decided to put the "Fun" in fundraising. Cathy Goodwin, the Chamber President, was able to persuade an impressive number of local businessmen, ranging in age from 20 to 70plus, to "drop their draws" for charity. In fact, there were so many eager entrepreneurs, that some months have multiple models provocatively posed for your pleasure. It just goes to show you that there's a willingness to grin and bare it for a good cause here in southern Maine!

The enthusiasm of the group moved me to part with a $20 bill plus $2 for shipping, for the opportunity to hang this piece of artwork in my office, knowing that the funds will go to the York Kiwanis Children's Program, York Hospital's "Every Patient" campaign, the Chamber Scholarship Fund, the American Legion Post, and/or the citizens' group "Think Again."

To enter the contest to get a copy of this calendar of your very own, just mention in your comment below that you want your name thrown into the hat. You can have your name entered a second time if you'll follow my blog (or let me know that you're already a follower) and sign my guestbook; and you can have your name entered a third time by mentioning this contest on your blog and creating a link back to Wrestling With Retirement. The winner will be chosen by a random drawing on December 5th.

If you don't trust your luck, and you really want a copy of this calendar for your very own, you can go to http://www.gatewaytomaine.org/ and order one for $20 plus $2 for shipping. You'll have a fun calendar to keep or give as a gift and the knowledge that you've donated to a good cause.

Note: No obscenity laws were broken in the publishing of this calendar.
