  1. Great list, thanks, here are some networking events in the Buffalo/Niagara area if anyone is interested.

  2. How is “Who Gives a Fund” going? A Caribbean cruise is just way too enticing. I’m pretty sure that it’ll attract other people too – yes. even non-business owners. Too bad you only win with the most views and not for being the most creative.
