Scott Roberts’ Gargantuan Hot Sauce Giveaway Contest

1000 blog postsHave there really been 1000 official blog posts I’ve whipped up here on Where has the time gone?!? It’s been an absolute blast and a roller-coaster ride, and I look forward to many more years of doing this.

There’s the obligatory list of people to thank for the success of this site. Unfortunately it contains far too many people to give a mention to everyone individually. You’ve all been amazing! So I want to give a shout out to my fellow bloggers for their friendship and support; ALL the chileheads and BBQers out there who love the spice and cook up great grub every weekend; all the hundreds of friendly industry folks who make tasty products, sell the products, and promote everything we love about chile peppers, sauces and seasonings; everyone who has allowed me to talk, write and collaborate with them, whether it be online, on a podcast or on the radio; my two boys, Cory and Kevin, for putting up with dad’s hobby and for being the best kids any man could ever ask for; my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; my girlfriend Mary Ellen who has been an unwavering rock with her love and encouragement; and lastly all the visitors and readers of this blog. I would be nothing without you as an audience!

I couldn’t just let this 1000th post milestone pass by without a little fanfare. What should I do to celebrate? Hmmmm….

The Biggest Hot Sauce Giveaway in History

It’s been a while since I’ve done a contest or a giveaway, so I decided to offer a sweet little prize pack to one lucky winner. Well, in all honesty it’s pretty far from being “little” or diminutive in any way as it’s truly the largest hot sauce giveaway contest ever! An unprecedented number of top specialty makers of hot sauce, BBQ sauce, seasonings and spices have volunteered to pitch in for this momentous occasion. Just peruse the chart below for a full list of participating manufacturers and the incredible products they’re offering for the winner. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that such a gargantuan prize be awarded to some lucky chilehead!

Step Up For CharitySince so many people give given their support and friendship over the years, I couldn’t let this huge contest pass by without me being able to “pay it forward” and give something back. My way of doing this is to require all entrants donate each least $1.00 to Step Up For Charity. As many of you hot sauce fans know, Step Up For Charity is the charitable organization founded by firefighter and former chile pepper grower and sauce maker Jim Campbell to help a number of worthy causes. Jim is thrilled to be involved in this, and I hope you folks don’t let us down by giving generously.

You can choose to give the minimum $1.00, or a larger amount like $2, $5, $10 or whatever you can afford. You must send the money to me via PayPal, and I will pass on 100% of what I receive along to Step Up For Charity. In fact, I will eat up any fees PayPal takes out and pay for them out of my own pocket, therefore you can know that every single penny of what you’re able to give will be passed on to Jim and his charity!

How to Enter

1. On the PayPal website under “Send Money”, simply donate one US dollar or more to my PayPal e-mail address of sc***@sc*************.com.

2. Specify that this money is a purchase of “Services”, and click the “Continue” button.

3. On the next page, scroll down to the bottom and put all of the following information in the “Message” field:

• Your First and Last Name

• Your Postal Address (NO PO Boxes allowed)

• Your E-Mail Address

• Your Phone Number

• Your T-Shirt Size, as a few of the prizes offered are shirts.

All entries must be received at the end of day on Friday, September 23, 2011 to be eligible. After the deadline, one winner will be chosen at random to win the entire prize pack, and all volunteering product manufacturers will be given the winner’s address to that each of the donated prizes can be shipped.

So good luck to everyone, and don’t forget to dig deep and donate generously to Step Up For Charity!
