Just wanted to take a moment to again tell you all how much I appreciate your donations.
While I was away at the track the office held our Stand at "Tampa's Largest Office Party" (which is a tri-annual XO networking event with attendance around 1100) inside the ice hockey arena where the Tampa Bay Lightning play, inside the "XO Club" where we're THE most prominent sponsor.
All told, there were "Chief XX XX" level executives from many of our partner and customer companies in attendance and they raised some $60.00.
Yes, those cheapwad schmucks donated all of about $60.00 and our people were working them.
You, the members of this website dug deeper than anyone else we contacted (and we contacted lots of people) and contributed 73% of the total money raised by XO Tampa. 73%.
I am sincerely in awe of you.
We got the company-wide total results back from corporate today:
