Statement from Costa:




"One of our panelists, Costa CEO Holly Rush, was unfortunately unable to join us today due to the impact of Hurricane Irma. Costa is based in Daytona Beach, Florida and employs over 250 people in the area.




“Holly remains in Florida this week to assess the  impact of the storm as well as relief efforts for employees, hundreds of their customers and the community they call home.




“The Costa team rallied support following Hurricane Harvey, assembling hundreds of first responder gear packs and donating over 20,000 tshirts to area shelters for those in need. They plan to step up once again to help in the wake of Irma's devastating impact.




Holly sends her regards, and looks forward to seeing you all in the future."
