I’m so proud of the GETDOT Membership and it’s because of your generous support that we were so successful this year! In 2013, we raised $11,900…a new record…for local children’s charities. And, from that total, we wrote a check for $3000 to Franklin County Children’s Services…our largest check since GETDOT was founded!
GETDOT has a lot to be thankful for…all of you who donated raffle prizes and silent auction items, all the members and guests who attended our events and made each one special and, of course, our fantastic sponsors! We were truly blessed to have a premier sponsor in Saia & Piatt. Jon Saia and his group not only attended every event but also sponsored them and financially supported the development of our website. Also, Adam Koos and Libertas Wealth Management Group became a gold sponsor in Q2 and supported GETDOT in that capacity ever since! And we can’t forget our awesome silver sponsors, Click 2 Sell and ProForma Graphic Impressions, and our 2013 bronze sponsors, Newhouse, Prophater, Letcher & Moots and Delta Dental!
A special mention must go out to Rich Workman and his Digital Retriever set up. He took pictures and posted all of the event “happenings” at each of our GET-togethers on the big screen! And, we also want to thank Derek and Rich Atchley at Atchley signs who made the sponsor signs that are proudly displayed at each event!
In 2013, our membership grew almost a thousand members to over 3,000 strong! I’ve been so impressed at how the “word” of GETDOT is spreading and we continue to see lots of guests attend each event. I’m challenging each of our members to not only attend one of our events in 2014, but also to bring as many guests as they can —to experience GETDOT firsthand and share the special things GEDTDOT continues to do!
I hope you realize that all of you are part of a very special group. For those of you who attended an event this year, you experienced casual networking at its finest, met some FUN people and made new friends in some of Columbus’ best venues, developed some personal business relationships AND supported ten of Central Ohio’s best local Children’s Charities!
Look for our upcoming calendar of events/charities for 2014 and we hope to see you soon!
Have a wonderful Holiday Season…and a happy, and safe, New Year’s!
Chip, Scott and the AWESOME GETDOT Board!
