I'm going to start off with some Child's Play news. We went Live with CP 2006 on Monday and as of right now we're sitting at about $64,000 in cash and toy donations. What's incredible is about $40,000 of that is in actual wish list donations. I try not to cuss when talking about Child’s Play but that’s fucking incredible! I’ll admit that I was worried about CP this year. There are a lot of worthy causes asking for your charity this year and I would not have thought any less of you if you chose to send your money elsewhere. I’m honored that so many of you see the value in Child’s Play.
We’ve added a couple new hospitals this week. You can now purchase toys for the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children (Honolulu, Hawaii) and the UNM Children’s Hospital (Albuquerque, New Mexico.) Just hit the website for more information. Speaking of the website, if you head over there you will also see mention of this year’s charity dinner. This is our second year doing this and I’m really looking forward to it. This is a super fancy dinner that we hold here in Bellevue. I’m talking about Tycho and I in tuxedoes and guys walking around with hors d’oeuvres. It’s a really fun night with incredible food, lots of great people and it’s all for a good cause. If you’re interested I recommend getting your tickets soon.
