Back in April, I had the opportunity to do some pro bono work for the Conference of Inclusive Communities (CFIC). CFIC is trying to make the world a better place by raising awareness and advocates around issues of difference (race, culture, faith, sexual orientation, class and other diversities), and focusing on reducing personal and institutional biases and prejudices.
They were going to have a Humanitarian Dinner in a couple of months and they needed an e-commerce solution for the event registrations. The dinner is one of their most critical fundraising events of the year and they needed someone to get the job done.
Volano Solutions was happy to assist them and the task fell to me. CFIC had an existing form in ASP that they had used previously for something similar. Although most of our projects at Volano are written for the .Net framework, ASP is like a second language to me. I was able to re-work the existing software for their dinner event.
The event was a success! They had over 500 people in attendance and raised $120,000!
Volano Solutions is honored to have had the opportunity to assist the CFIC and wishes them continued success.

Many of us remember the grade school game Telephone. It was funny to see how a simple message would get garbled as it was passed along from person to person. But it’s not as funny when that message is a critical business requirement that will be turned into software that will power your business. Yet, […]
