    Was gonna answer, but it was covered.

    The thing seems legit although it was not as widely promoted as one would expect when you're trying to raise money for charities.

    Do you think it could have raised more funds as a raffle type thing? Like you donate $20 per entry into a drawing for the call. All money still goes to charity put the ebay format instantly eliminates the vast majority of people who could be interested in this. I probably would have donated $20 to a good cause and a chance, albeit small, of getting a zoom call with Dave or any other celebrity that piqued my interest.

    Absolutely! The $11,000 is only 550 $20 donations.

    Re: Zoom Call with Dave Matthews (of the Dave Matthews Band!)

    I think most people who post here in DMBc would’ve ponied up $20 for a chance to spend a half hour talking to Dave. I’m fairly certain they would’ve made more doing this as a raffle.

    Would be cool if an Ant had ended up getting the call.

    I wonder if the guy who won the contest has a real name that rhymes with Steve Willywhite.

    seanie b disappearing into thin air reminds me when I was a kid watching Mr. Rogers and the trolley would disappear into the wall and I'd get this suffocating, almost claustrophobic feeling that it would never come back.
