The 2013 Digital Ball is in the history books. Everyone had a great time and a lot of money was raised for TechBridge. Congratulations to James Franklin, Carrie Bates Hastings and the entire team at TechBridge along with a huge team of volunteers. This was a special night and you made it so.
Booth 61 had the privilege of broadcasting live during the opening reception. We interviewed leading technologists who have been at every Digital Ball and those who were attending for the very first time.
What an honor it was to have my friend and the CIO of the American Cancer Society, Jay Ferro, visit us in the Booth. Jay served as the Chair of the Host Committee for the 2013 Digital Ball. The American Cancer Society is a recipient of the expertise that TechBridge provides the not for profit community. In addition and I do not believe Jay will mind me sharing this since he shared this live on the air, Jay lost his beloved wife to cancer 7 years ago which was part of his motivation to move from the CIO in the for profit world into the CIO of a not for profit, American Cancer Society. Jay shared from his heart and had me in tears during his interview. You will find Jay’s heart open, transparent, and giving.
