It’s nearly that time again: The 2010 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Meeting is this coming Saturday, May 1. I will be attending this year’s meeting, along with nine other Business Wire people including our CEO, Cathy Baron Tamraz. And once more, Business Wire is providing a fun item for other attendees to pick up and help support a good cause.
This year, visitors to Omaha can visit Business Wire and spend a dollar to smash a penny! Our specially designed penny press will allow you to create a souvenir penny with any of four fun designs, including images of Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. Each souvenir penny, which will include a commemorative folder, will cost $1. All proceeds will once again benefit CASA of Douglas County, Neb. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a charitable organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system.
So come to our booth and spend $1, $2 or even $4 to smash four pennies and support a great cause. While you’re there, say hello to our staff and find out more about how Business Wire continues to lead the industry in making the humble press release a crucial communications tool.
Read the entire press release on these fun souvenirs here. I’ll also be tweeting from the event under Business Wire’s handle; you can follow at http://twitter.com/BusinessWire. I, and everyone here at Business Wire, look forward to seeing you there!
