WOW only 45K minimum needed? Extremely generous of the charity.
Minimum needed to not have to cancel =/= projected or even hoped-for amount.

I'm not even sure if those are the right words to describe how I feel about it.
I'm gonna go with "fake"

Those are actually really pretty and great to have for guests!
Indeed, which is why I bought a dozen, and they came to use the first Shabbos after I bought them! (though 2 or 3 dozen would have been better for that Shabbos)

Wow so I kinda just skimmed over this post
https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60259096/

 ;D

Actually bought a dozen of these during my last visit.

Though back when I actually needed a purchase for the water taxi, it was this that we managed to find.
and didn't realize there are 2 different links. I was very confused trying to figure out why you guys were getting dog bowls for all your guests.

I will watch this after Shabbat but will this answer the question of if its ok to be offering Halachic advise and making assumptions that this is like any Chinese auction and by virtue ok to use Massr?

Alot of times the prizes are donated in-kind.

Dan please don't take offense but if by that token one could use Masser without knowing how much is going to the charity then we can all create loopholes, make a blind trust whereof our 10 percent all goes back to us with a small amount going to a charity.

Just like a tx receipt for a dinner that is $360 may say $300 (subtracting the dinner) so to one (I would assume) needs to subtract the cost ... obviously when you donat there is overhead and for a food bank half of your donation can go to salaried employees but when it is something your experiencing for your benefit and not admin costs etc. ( a dinner, contest ect. you should have to subtract).

If your going to be implying that you could use Maser please reveal how much is going to the org.

Please don't take this the wrong way.

Good Shabbat.

This is so ridiculous on so many levels.

I'll be in for at least 2, I'll do it once I decide how much I want to put in.

Nothing wrong, but that a high threshold for someone who cares about that multiple.  ;)
Someone who cares about that multiple probably likes 55x חבד.

2 for $180 was a smart move. I probably wouldn't get 2 for $240 but I plan on doing 2 for $180. Judging by the comments  it seems that's gonna be a popular choice.

From the Organizer of the Event- Klal Yisrael is facing a great challenge today - the anti-semitism we have faced and the oppression we are facing now all stems from an anti Semitic comment made by Town Supervisor Ed Sykes after Ian Leifer received permission to host this event from the building inspector Jim McElroy. Ed Sykes said after permission was granted by the building inspector - “You must have thumbed your nose at the town because you are Jewish” - the ensuing lawsuit resulted because of Ed Sykes anti-Semitic comment- he is behind all of the harassment and legal affairs. It is times like this, that Klal Yisrael needs to unite for social justice against corruption and the enemies of the Jewish people. We ARE moving forward with the event - and have alternative parking alongside the road at 341 Swiss Hill Road North, Jeffersonville, NY 12748. Additional alternative parking is being obtained - and we are asking all guests to come and take part in the event in protest of the injustice that has come upon us. If not now, when? When the Jewish people forgo their doubts and stand up for truth - HaShem is with them. We are Am Yisrael - and it is moments like these that define who we are as a people. All aspects of the event are in place and will move forward as planned - the only thing we are
missing is your presence here, and your support. There are already 100 people+ here that are taking a stand - will you be part of this cause? We need YOU and the event will go on with you. Three holy tzaddikim in our time have all urged us to go forward with this event - Come now- the catered food will be here as planned, all services and all acts will take place as planned. COME- they can try to hurt the few, but they cannot the many. We have overwhelming support and many more people are coming now then ever before to stand up for our right to celebrate our love for G-d. Stay alert to our posts - we will keep you updated.

where's the throw up emoji when you need it

I wouldn't call failing to meet a (readily googalable) deadline getting "screwed by an accountant"
-1/2

The whole point of hiring professionals is that you don't need to be figuring out things yourself.
