 to offer your culinary masterpiece that you elect or wish to 
 deliver to the December 17th Holiday Party.

 Plant Exchange at Holiday Party
 It has simple rules. Wrap a bromeliad so that the naked eye cannot 
 discern  the
plant within. When you arrive with such a plant, you 
 receive a ticket – a la raffle style. The master ticket holder will call 
 out numbers in an order – hence the first called will have the pick 
 of one of the plants wrapped; and the second will have one pick of 
 the
remaining plants, and so forth. If you really want to engage, 
 bring wrapped plants, or even more, and you will receive more 
 tickets, which means you will have more wrapped plants to blindly 
 pick up.
