Some good points made here, but I think that as a community, we can overlook the rules on this one considering two key points.....
He is not promoting his own interests, but rather a worthwhile charity.
One of our very own here on CT has been a recipient of said charity.
Of course big business will plaster their logo all over events like this, and why not..marketing is part of the fabric of humanity. We all have marketed ourselves, just without the logo. (Booewen, ya ever go on a date with someone you thought was a hottie? Guess what....all evening you were likely marketing yourself with wit, charm, and charisma, and hopefully it was real and not contrived or generated.)
If some of us were able to trade places for a few days with Jenn, I have no doubt we all would wish Dave would post more often about events such as this. Maybe some of the negative nellies should shut their pie-holes and participate in this event, and just be thankful they can.
I'll be there, and only because of this thread. If it wasn't for Dave, I wouldn't have known. Great venue, great cause. Now go sign up and focus on things that actually matter.
