As a proud Chicagoan, I love my NHL Western Conference Division leading Chicago Blackhawks. So you can imagine how disturbing it was to see my California based doppelganger (this Drew McManus) boasting on Facebook that the San Jose Sharks would beat the Hawks in tonight’s game. I immediately gave Drew grief, an exchange ensued, and we ended up with the following bet: in the unlikely event the Sharks win, he gets Adaptistration for two days and when the Balckhawks win, one of my 501(c)(3) readers will receive a free fundraising project on Bring Light. It is so on…
Regardless of the outcome, you’re the real winner since in addition to his other successful pursuits, California Drew is an excellent writer and it would be interesting to see what he has to say about the classical music business (or whatever else he wants to write about). At the same time, the more likely outcome is one fortunate organization will get to experience the fantastic fundraising capabilities of Bring Light completely free of charge.
We’ll figure out a way to select the fortunate 501(c)(3) after the Thanksgiving holiday but right now, I’m leaning toward a contest of some sort that incorporates how an organization proposes to use the opportunity. In the meantime, I’m open to ideas so leave a comment or send in an email.
Fortunately, California Drew will get to witness his Sharks going down in person whereas I’ll have to be content with watching the Hawks triumph on ESPN at home or perhaps in a local sports bar. If you’re curious about California Drew’s outlook on this, check out his blog post.
UPDATE: The Blackhawks prevailed so stay tuned for details about the free Bring Light fundraising project!
