2007 SES New York Charity Event sponsored by Best of the Web

"BOTW & IMNY Charity Party Raises $5,100 for the Ronald McDonald House!"

On Monday April 9, 2007 Best of the Web and the Internet Marketers of New York, hosted the first SES Charity Event. In addition to providing a good opportunity for SES attendees to network (and drink for free), the event raised money and awareness for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Taking place at the Town Tavern in downtown Manhattan, all who attended donated $40 at the door and some even stepped up big by purchasing hundreds of raffle tickets to win a variety of cool prizes. So thanks to the solid turn out from Search Engine Strategies attendees and local NYC area internet marketers we were able to raise a total of $5,100 that was directly contributed to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

“I personally enjoyed this party the best” says Greg Niland, member of the IMNY. “Not because it was the most lavish but because for the first time an Internet party was giving back to the community by helping sick kids. I think everybody who attended or at least the warm blooded people would agree with me that it is nice to do something good.”

Many thanks to all who helped organize, promote, and ultimately attended this event. We cannot wait until the next event – which is to be held during the SMX Conference in October. Details coming soon…
