Holiday Fundraiser from an Orlando Tech affiliate

Posted on Updated on

Dear Tech4Good members,

Tech For Good and Orlando Tech Association are throwing a killer party to help kid’s charities, and we need you and tech4good’s help.

I am excited to be hosting the first Tech For Good fundraiser – a way to connect the tech community to the larger community through philanthropy. Specifically, we are raising money to help kid’s nonprofits in Orlando.

We are different than tech4good in name, but share the same spirit, and hope you can attend. For all the reason’s you are members of tech4good, we knew we needed to step up our philanthropy game. So, we are throwing a holiday style party at Irish Shannons on Friday, Dec 8th from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Bottomless drinks from the open bar, fun bar games (including a Flip Cup tournament), and lots of goodwill. You are the champions of the Orlando tech social good, and so I come to you looking for your assistance in making this a wild success.

The more people that attend and the more sponsor dollars we raise, the more kids we can help.

1. Please buy a ticket for yourself, your friends and loved ones, your employees, and even your customers. It does not need to be exclusive to techies – anyone who is awesome is welcome: anyone who likes fun and helping children should come. We intentionally scheduled it on a Friday night downtown, so it can either be a kick-ass happy hour or a kick-ass pre-party. Use promo code T4G to save $10.

2. Help us find supportive companies to sponsor with $500-$1000 donations. They will be promoted on all of the materials alongside OTA. Checks will be written directly to BAYS Florida, the nonprofit we are helping and are tax deductible – so contact Chris Lawson directly and I’ll facilitate.

3. Spread the word. Please spread the event info and mission, along with the coupon code far and wide via email, social, websites, friendly influencers and press. If you participate in other Meetups or group, please invite all of the members. Again, this is going to be a killer party that also helps kids, so do not be shy about shameless promotion as members of the OTA team. I sincerely appreciate your help. My goal is to host four events per year, with a new children’s charity beneficiary each time. If we can knock this one out of the park, the rest will be easy peasy.

Thanks in advance, Chris Lawson Founder/ Tech For Good
