The Winners Trophy (photo courtesy of Open Drawer)
Well golly gosh, it's been an astounding Hottie Challenge exhibition at Open Drawer Art Textiles and Learning Centre, and the time has come to announce the winners of the public vote.
For those of you who didn't have a chance to visit the exhibition in person, this is how the 'favourite hottie' voting system worked.
Each hottie had a number with a corresponding money box (pictured above).
The hottie that received the most money in the corresponding numbered money box over the entire exhibition would be the winner of the grand trophy (and much adulation and fanfare)
This voting was completely separate from the money raised from the actual sale of the hotties.
So without further ado, I'm very happy to announce that the amount of money raised just from the moneyboxes was .......
.....and now to the very fabulous winners
In 1st place (and the winner of the fabulous Hottie trophy) with a total of $46.20 was no.65 by Sue Dilley
In 2nd place (sheesh it was close) with a total of $45.50 was no.52 by Ro Owen from Fuzziteddybear
In 3rd place (and also really close) with a total of $40.30 was no.27 by Adele Donnison from Downunder Lass
All the SOLD hotties have now been taken down from display for collection by their new owners, but the fundraising effort is still continuing.
You can head into Open Drawer Gallery until August 3rd (which is when their next exhibition begins) and buy any remaining Hottie for $25.
After that date, I'll collect any unsold Hotties from our Group Entry and auction them either here on the blog, or on my CurlyPops Facebook page..... and then we can tally up the amazing amount of money that we've raised together for The Margaret Pratt Foundation.
I am sooooo proud of our group effort. We should congratulate the winners and also give ourselves a huge pat on the back for a job well done!
