The winner of the contest was Mr. Kevin Cully, one of the owners of AIR Graphics, Boston, MA.
Kevin’s guess was $421.5 million. ARC’s sales for full-year 2011 were reported, yesterday, at $422.73 mil.
Congratulations to Kevin.
When we announced the contest, we said this:
If you win the contest, please note:
· ½ of your prize will be donated, directly by me in your name, to your favorite charity. (No “religious charities, please!)
· The other ½ of your prize will be in the form of a check, issued by me to you.
When I contacted Kevin to congratulate him and to ask him about the donation to be made, Kevin told me to donate the entire $100 prize to the Susan G. Komen For the Cure (of Breast Cancer.) What a great guy Kevin is.
I’ve already made the donation:

Dear Mr. Salus,
Thank you so much for your generous contribution of $100.00 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Your support is hard at work bringing us closer to our promise of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
With nearly $1.5 billion invested to date, we are the world's single largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to confronting breast cancer at every stage. In fact, since we started in 1982, practically every advance in the fight against breast cancer has been touched in some way by a Susan G. Komen for the Cure grant.
With friends like you, along with survivors, activists, and supporters in more than 120 U.S. locations and a growing number of international cities and countries, we are literally making an impact and helping save millions of lives around the world.
Again thank you for your generous donation and for your commitment to our steadfast promise to end breast cancer.
