Mike ModanoOn Thursday I felt very lucky to be involved in something special.

{I don’t get my picture taken with Mike Modano everyday.}

It all started early in the morning in Arlington at the GM plant where 50 sparkling new Escalades rolled off the line.

But this event wasn’t about the cars, it was about making a difference.

Those 50 new Escalades provided transportation to 6 charity teams who are “competing” for a $150K advertising budget provided by 18 Texas Cadillac Dealers in Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
