I just got a comment a few minutes ago from "Rebecca" from the "maryland food Bank." I was a bit suspicious, because I am familiar with the Maryland Food Bank and what they do. I've volunteered there once or twice in the past and I know they do good stuff. What made me suspicious was the content of the post, which I've deleted but reprinted here for you in its entirety (hyperlink added by me):

Help the Maryland Food Bank!
Win round-trip business class airfare for two to London on British Airways. It’s only $20 per chance and all proceeds benefit the Maryland Food Bank. The drawing will be held at our 2008 Blue Jean Ball on May 2, 2008. Ticket quantity is limited…so act fast!
It seemed strange, because they seem to have a tight budget, and offering anything this nice is probably beyond their means, right? So instead of going to this website, I went directly to the MFB's site itself, and it indeed checks out! British Airways has donated the tickets, but only if sold as a raffle. And the price of the ticket will go to help many hungry Marylanders.
So again: a $20 raffle ticket, for two people, to London, England, UK. All proceeds benefit the good work of the Maryland Food Bank. I may in fact just buy one!
