Last week, HotSchedules hosted its 4^th^ annual User Conference, and it was a huge success. Over 100 executives and managers from customers of all sizes and locations came in for the one and half day conference with the theme “Learn It, Live It, Love It”. 

The Tuesday evening activity was Casino night and it felt like we had been transported to Vegas. Poker, Blackjack, Craps, Texas Hold ‘Em – we had it all, and everyone got down to betting. Instead of real money, players bargained for raffle tickets. The more tickets, the better your odds for winning one of the ultra-cool prizes on display. There were seven exciting prizes, including an Acer laptop, an iPad, a Kindle, an HD Digital Camera, a 3D Blu Ray player, a Wii Mario Bundle, and an iPod Nano.

In spite of that enticing array of prizes, players were also able to donate all or some portion of  their chips to the fire victims in Central Texas, and HotSchedules agreed to convert those chips into cash at the ratio of $5 for every 1,000 chips. That night, our amazing customers donated nearly 1 million in chips – the equivalent of $5,000 for the folks in our area who are trying to start over from nothing.

A special and enormous thank you to all of the HotSchedules customers who made that spectacular donation possible. Your generosity is unparalleled.
