That's one sweet Snowman: 364 lb marshmellow, butter, cereal snowman up for auction!

In Deerfield, NH, a soon-to-be- raffled 5-foot-5, 364-pound holiday treat snowman named Mr. Red is currently residing in the lobby at the Inn at Deerfield, a facility for people suffering from or nearing dementia. Mr. Red's name is in honor of his sponsor, the Manchester’s Red Oak Apartment Homes.

Jeff Fowler, the cook at The Inn at Deerfield, a home for seniors with forms
of dementia, photographs a snowman the residents made out of cereal for a
raffle they will hold on December 14, 2012

The money raised through the raffle will go toward the resident activity fund, which sponsors activities for the 32 residents (ages 55 - 93) - trips to the movies, shopping, having  local musicians coming by to entertain at the center, picnics, blueberry picking, gardening and more.

You can read more about this project at the Concord Monitor online.
