Digital Ball 2001, the very first Digital Ball, was sponsored by 67 technology companies, attended by more than 900 members of the technology community, and raised over $200,000. Guests were entertained with hand-balancing ‘live’ statues, aerialists and technology comedian, Don McMillan. A momentum was created for future Digital Ball events by celebrating the spirit of philanthropy in the technology community.
