If the church is understaffed then it sounds like they are probably struggling to stay up to date on the basics.  I can understand not wanting to push them for further action as far as TL is concerned.  However, a receipt for the $50 donation does sound reasonable and shouldn't take too much time.

I simply can't wrap my mind around that womans thinking. This was a charity do for church. For CHURCH for Pete's sake! She thinks her Deity wants her to donate from the goodness of her heart or whatever reason, and Clever Turkey Lady figures pretending to donate will miraculously fool an all-seeing, all-knowing being and somehow still get her super awesome bonus karma? Because she's oh so righteous and giving?

How? What...why?! And also; DUMB!

Argh. I know that was incoherent, but this whole thing broke my brain.
Just because someone is offended that does not mean they are in the right.

Turkey lady might not need or want the tax deduction receipt.  It might have been the social status gained by donating a desirable thing to the raffle.

They may want to talk to the auction coordinator ahead of time (that is, now) if it will be the same person for future auctions rather than wait. Better to have one's barriers up ahead of time rather than wait until the storm auction is around the corner.

A recent thread made me think of this one.

I know there's probably not another update, but I had to check anyway!  Has anything else happened with this since we last heard?

Yeah, DottyG, me too! The Stolen Cake. As soon as I saw the title, I thought, hmmmm... wonder if it's like the turkey. And to top it off, it involved a business donating something to a charity, just like this story. Funny, huh?

Those dang charities.  Always so much trouble, aren't they? ;)

OP here....

Ha!  Funny to see this resurrected. 

Unfortunately, there really isn't any more to tell; it never really went any farther.  As I suspected would happen, Sis and BIL never did anything further with this.  I did ask her about once, several months later, and she said that they didn't do anything more (life has a way of getting busy and some things just have to slide), but also added that she couldn't wait to see if this woman tried to 'donate' anything again.  If she did, Sis was going to tell the head of the donation committee about her experience the previous year, so hopefully Turkey Lady could be prevented from pulling the same scam on someone else. 

If there is ever an update, I will be sure to let everyone know!

And funny...when I read about the cakes, my mind did flit back to Turkey Lady for a brief moment too!
