At 9:00pm on Friday of DashCon 2014, hotel management gave con staff an ultimatum: raise $17,000 by 10:00pm, or the con gets shut down.

One incredible half-hour later, the staff announced that enough money had been raised. I just had to capture the energy and emotion in the room at that wonderful moment.
