I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.
Not a happy story, but if you've got a child I suspect it will be easy to decide to buy a raffle ticket to try to help out. My friend Steve Jones posted the raffle over at SSC. Brian, Steve, and I (End to End Training) are doing our bit by providing some of the prizes, and we'll be contributing some cash as well. All proceeds go to help Katie directly, nothing to expenses.
