The 2006 Digital Ball, sponsored by Accenture, not only energized its corporate sponsors and nonprofit clients, but also exceeded goals for fundraising. The event, held Saturday May 6, 2006, at the Georgia World Congress Center, enjoyed more than 1,050 attendees from 84 sponsoring companies and raised more than $1 million in cash and in-kind donations to fund TechBridge operations and nonprofit technology programs. Guests felt the power and energy of the TechBridge mission and were invited to enter a place, whose inhabitants defied the laws of gravity. Digital Ball 2006 was a kinetic world of connectivity, velocity and illumination.
