On Saturday I attended Max It Out, a local charity event inspired by a 4-year old bacterial meningitis survivor whose parents are friends of mine. Bradbury Software was among the event’s sponsors, which led to an almost surreal experience.
The fundraiser featured performances by country music stars, and the logos of each sponsor were projected onto a screen during the entire concert. For me, it was, well, very unusual to see the “TopStyle” and “FeedDemon” logos appear behind Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Wynonna as they played.
For the record, I’ve never been a huge country music fan, but I’m so glad that I attended the event and offered a small contribution through my sponsorship. Well over a quarter of a million dollars was raised for meningitis research, and nobody left that night without being touched by the dedication of parents whose children are affected by the disease.
