Well, the time has come again! Time for my wife and I to start training for the MS150 charity ride here in NE Florida. If you’re not familiar with the event, you can get more details here. Its basically a charity fundraiser bike ride from St. Augustine, FL to Daytona Beach, FL covering 150 miles in 2 days. My wife and I rode this for the first time last year and we had an absolute blast! It was hard work but the feeling of accomplishment crossing that finish line was second to none. And knowing we were raising money for the MS Society made it that much more special.
Last year, Adobe was generous enough to donate a copy of ColdFusion Builder for me to give away to one lucky randomly selected person that donated to my charity ride. This was greatly appreciated and helped me to raise over $500 for the MS Society!
This year however, is the 25th Anniversary of the event here in Jacksonville so I wanted to really up the stakes as well as my goal. So I have set a goal of raising $1000 this year. And to help out with that, the fine folks at Adobe have once again stepped up to help me out. They have donated one license to ANY of the Creative Suite 5.5 products with the exception of Master Suite! That includes CS5.5 Design Premium, CS5.5 Design Standard, CS5.5 Web Premium or CS5.5 Production Premium. Your choice! Hows that for incentive?!
But, not stopping there, I have a CS 5.1 Master Collection license that Im also going to throw into the ring! Keep in mind these are digital distributions so I will provide you with the license and you will download the software from Adobe’s website.
So here’s how this works. Im going to run the contest basically the same way I did last year. You can donate to my ride online at the MS150 website. In the notes field, enter an email address that I can reach you when submitting your donation. Donate any amount you wish, but for each $5.00 dollars that you donate, you will get one entry into the drawing. So a $20 donation would get you 4 entries into the drawing. Please remember to enter your name as well so I know who you are.
The day before the ride, Friday September 30th, I will be doing the random drawings. The first winner chosen will get his choice of either the CS5.1 Master Collection license OR one of the CS5.5 Suites listed above. The second winner chosen will get the other license.
Thanks again to Adobe for their generosity and thanks in advance to all of you for your support!
