what does "pulled all the promotion stops " mean? As general chairman for tonight's dinner he had sold 3,450 tickets, and he had pulled all the promotion stops in an effort to meet his commitment to O'Donnell.

"To pull all the stops" or "pull out all the stops" means to do something without any hesitation, to ignore any other factors and perform it singlemindedly. The phrase even implies someone is willing to forget laws or ethics.
