Go Daddy Goes Big with $3 Million Holiday Party and Record Donations

Go Daddy throws big party and makes major charitable contributions.

GoDaddyGo Daddy CEO Bob Parsons certainly lives by the “go big or go home” mantra. As evidence, his company topped last year’s $2 million holiday party with a $3 million party this year. The event was held last Saturday night at Chase Field in Phoenix.

Among the notable guests were boxer Muhammad Ali, a friend of Bob Parsons and Shane Tews, VP VeriSign Global Public Policy & Govt. Relations.

The company is reporting 22% revenue growth in 2009. If the numbers published in Inc. Magazine earlier this year are correct, this would mean GoDaddy’s 2009 revenues topped $600 million.

But GoDaddy didn’t just spend money on itself — it topped last year’s $1.7 million in charity giving. At Saturday night’s party, the company announced a major gift to the Danica Patrick Domestic Violence Center.

In a year where flat was the new growth, it’s good to see a company in the domain industry continue its upward trajectory.
