Golden Globes Fundraising Contest - RESULTS!

The results of the Golden Globes are in and we have a winner for our fundraising contest as well!

For those of you who are unaware, our team for the Breast Cancer 3 Day, Relentless Optimism, recently ran a contest to see who could correctly predict the most winners at the 2010 Golden Globes in 25 categories.  Each entry was accompanied by a small donation to Relentless Optimism to help us raise money for breast cancer research and the winner was awarded a small cash prize.  To read all of the details about the Golden Globes Fundraising Contest, please check out this post.

Our Golden Globes contest generated 11 entries and raised $55 towards our team's fundraising goals.  Our most heartfelt thanks goes out to all of our participants, listed here in no particular order:  Karen Sager, Dawn Mazzanti, JT Shoemaker, Sarah Barrows, Kelly Langdon (who entered twice!), Hally Trementozzi, Rex Sager, Roger Sager, and Kristin Moreland.  Oh, and I entered, too.

Most of our participants proved fairly adept at forecasting the future, with more than half of you correctly predicting more than a third of the winners.  We actually had a tie between two people for the most correct guesses, with each of them correctly predicting the winners in 12 out of 25 categories.  Our ultimate winner was chosen by a blind draw between the two and is (drum roll please.....):

Please join me in congratulating my Uncle Rex on his awesome performance in our competition.  I also wanted to recognize Kelly Langford, who finished a strong second, also correctly predicting 12 out of 25 winners.  To see how you did, please see the final list of winners at the HFPA website.

I hope that all of you enjoyed this contest as much as I did.  It was a fun way to raise some money for a great cause and I'm looking forward to doing it again very soon!  Keep an posted on this blog for all the information about our upcoming Super Bowl contest!

Until then, Relentless Optimism, together with the adorable cast of Glee, salute Rex on his big win!
