Disco Inferno

Andy Shuman:
“Since Tony is the only one in the room who was a teenager in the 1970s, I guess we’ll have to take his word for it that he was ‘cool’ and not ‘groovy’ back then.”

During a recent meeting regarding the upcoming, disco-themed Choice One Charity Cup*, the young punks around Choice One mistakenly thought that “groovy” was a term used in the 70s until Tony corrected them. Apparently “cool” was the term Tony [tried to] use for himself in the 70s.

To get everyone in a leisure suit frame of mind, we’ve been gathering photos of Choice One employees and Charity Cup invitees from the 1970s**. Granted, a lot of us weren’t alive in the 70s, although Matt Hoying submitted a photo of a cosmic twinkle, as he was “just a twinkle in his parents eyes” in the 1970s. And while we’ve been thoroughly enjoying these photos, the coolest and grooviest part of this disco-style Charity Cup is how much our clients and friends step up to support the amazing efforts of the Miami Valley Down Syndrome Association, the organization to which all of your generous Charity Cup donations will go.

Perhaps in an effort to prove that he isn’t really that old, Tony has yet to share a photo of his “cool” teenage self from the 70s. (Flat Tony helped us guess while Tony was on vacation. You can see that photo here.) Don’t be like Tony: share a photo of yourself to enter our Charity Cup 70s Photo Contest!

* The Choice One Charity Cup is just 12 days away on March 30!
