Over the course of the nearly 17 years I have been in the internet industry, I have had the opportunity to meet some great people. Bruce Kilby is one of those people. I met Bruce at an Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conference in Jupiter, Florida a few years ago. As part of the conference, I had offered a free web design package and hosting as a raffle giveaway.
When Bruce entered the raffle, I vaguely recall hearing him say that “he never wins anything.” Well, this day would be Bruce’s lucky day. I’ve never seen someone so overjoyed to win a prize so small. In the days afterward I would learn why. Bruce desperately needed a website for his drafting and church design business – something he could not afford at the time. Winning the raffle drawing was an answer to his prayers.
