Tonight, in a rare interview, Donny goes one-on-one with billionaire Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates. On location from the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Washington, Gates gives Donny a very up-close and personal look at his company, his life and his philanthropy. What does Gates carry in his wallet? It all comes out in this full hour with Bill Gates and Donny.

This was an unforgettable trip for all of us. When we arrived at the Microsoft campus in Washington, I expected a pretty typical array of buildings and offices. The campus was anything but typical…it was sprawling, and landscaped and I could feel the energy among the employees I spotted walking around the facility. What an impressive place to work! As we taped the interview with Mr. Gates I could feel that same energy. I was planted on the floor near the stage during the interview and at one point looked out into the audience of several hundred people. They all had a look of amazement on their faces. We all shared something pretty amazing that day…and I know that our trip to visit Mr. Gates is one that will never be forgotten.
