The backstory:

Craig Beason (CEO of Renodis) and Jeff Mader (CIO of Sun Country Airlines) started engaging IT Leaders three years ago with a charity event and CIO auction. Last year 18 local CIOs donated a lunch hour and the event/auction raised over $110,000 for cancer research and initiatives. You can watch the video here. Craig and Jeff are now working together to launch CIOs Against Cancer.
