Letter to Editor: Cool Approach to Tinseltown
I really enjoyed the Tight Hollywood Connections Pay Off article. I found it informative and cool. It is always interesting for me (as an engineer) to see how we create marketing relationships to help sell the products and build mindshare. It is refreshing to see that we take a different approach and that it appears to be paying dividends.

Just a quick note to thank you for pulling together a great article on the Steveb Gulf State event yesterday! With very little time and lots of moving parts, the team was able to craft an article that did a great job focusing on the ultimate goal of our giving: helping real people. ...In the end, the article will help employees to see not only the number of dollars we give, but the lives that are affected.

Wow, this is great. Thanks.  I have done lots of interviews over the years. You captured my intent far better than most. It was a pleasure.
