Let’s face it. The Platinum PIAs were a lot of fun and this fun lasted for ten straight years of celebrating community and the accomplishment of entrepreneurs who made a difference to charities and society. And if the PIAs hadn’t lost to cancer one of our key collaborators, we might well have continued for another decade.
But that wasn’t in the cards, Rodger was taken from us, and in losing him it was clear that the Platinum PIAs would never be the same again. So the PIAs as we knew it ended and the torch of recognizing entrepreneurs making a difference in their communities made way to a new vista.
