The Best of Raw Awards 2010

The highlight of my snowbound week, thus far, has been last night's 3rd Annual Best of Raw Awards! The event was held in Santa Monica, CA at Matt Amsden's Rawvolution and the entire 3 hour event streamed live along with a very lively chat room full of viewers from around the globe who all turned out to cheer for their favored person, place or thing. It was an action packed night of great fun!

I'm still a little stunned, but delighted at the honor & recognition of Raw Food Rehab winning The Best Raw Community Site. Of all the categories, this was the one I most hoped we'd place in, but I did not expect to win. I'm genuinely thrilled because it's not MY award but an entire commuinity award, which makes it all the more wonderful and special! When I asked Susan, who assists me with running the site, what her thoughts were on RFR's win she said, "This is not about us (she & I). It's TEAM work that makes the DREAM work!" Well said, my friend, well said.

I've been so giddy all day and decided we needed to have a celebratory giveaway! Click here to go sign up to win a copy of Philip McCluskey & Heather Pace's brand new release, Raw Food Carob Desserts! I'll be drawing for the winner this coming Monday, February 7th!
