    Thanks to everyone for making the charity auction such a huge success this year. With your help, we raised (by my count, Fok can confirm later) $16,675 for Ronald McDonald House Charities. This money will go to making a difference in the lives of families in need. I hope all the auction winners enjoy the prizes they've won from our generous partners, who are the ones that really make this event happen. I hope I haven't left anyone out, but here's a list of all the vendors who donated this year. Please show them some appreciation by giving their sites a look and keeping them in mind next time you're making a purchase. I always enjoy buying from a store I know cares about the community they sell to:

    No Man Walks Alone
    Epaulet
    Panta
    Need Supply
    Leather Soul
    Bespoke England
    Kent Wang
    A Fine Pair of Shoes
    nSuited
    Crane's Country Store
    eHaberdasher
    Neo Nouveau (Special shoutout to @dibadiba as 1) this was the auction with the highest hammer price 2) I won it)
    Exquisite Trimmings
    Kirby Allison's Hanger Project
    Yellow Hook Neckties
    Drinkwater's Cambridge
    Passaggio Cravatte
    JP Marcellino
    Andrew Lock
    Malford of London

    Thanks also to members @jrd617 and @in stitches for their donations. If you'd like to join them in adding to Styleforum's total donation, send a Paypal personal payment to styleforum.financial@gmail.com with the title "Donation: Styleforum RMHC Charity Drive"

    Finally, an especially big thank you to @SpooPoker and LuxeSwap for the biggest donation of this event, donating an outstandingly generous $2,312.

    Happy New Year, all.

    Congrats to all, but most importantly thanks to all of you who bid on something - you made a sick child smile in the season they need to be a kid the most.

    Dont forget this feeling in May, or June... these kids need you all year long.

    Thanks guys. The Ronald McDonald House is really important to me, and a really great organization doing some great work. Thanks for making this year the new banner year, exceeding last year's total by over $3000. So awesome.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Just wanted to let everyone know this goes to an extremely awesome cause. The Ronald Mcdonald house is a wonderful place, having have lived there for more than a year I can say it was helpful beyond measure.
