The Baby Q Prediction Contest!

Update! As of 10am on Tuesday, November 24th, Melissa is in labor!

Announcing our first team fundraising contest: The Baby Q Prediction Contest!

Our friend and teammate Melissa Querry and her husband Todd are expecting their first child in late November. In the grand tradition of baby pools every where, we are running a contest for our family and close friends to predict the details of Baby Q's arrival. The official due date for the little lady is November 19th, but as we all know, babies keep to their own schedules! So in the name of fun and fundraising, let the guessing begin!

To enter the contest, please send your best predictions to the following questions to before Baby Q comes:

1. Date of birth
2. Hour of birth
3. Minute of birth
4. Height (in inches)
5. Weight (in pounds)
6. First letter of the first name

The cost per entry is a $10 donation or $20 for three entries. You may enter as many times as you want, as long as you pay for them. Points will be awarded for the most correct answers and the winner will receive a cash prize equal to the half the amount of money collected. The remaining money will be donated to our team fundraising efforts. If a member of our 3-Day team wins, all of the money collected will be donated to the team.

This contest is to benefit our as yet unnamed team for the 2010 Breast Cancer 3 Day in Boston. Each individual is required to raise at least $2300 to participate, so we've got a long way to go! Look for more contests in the future and be sure to check out our individual and team fundraising pages which are linked in the right hand side bar.

Again, to enter, please email your answers to the questions above to Please pay for your entries using the Paypal Donate button on the right hand sidebar. Be sure to include your name when donating so I know who to credit. All entries that are received and paid for prior to the arrival of Baby Q will be eligible to win!

Let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks so much for all your support!
