MWLUG 2016 Outreach Program
Building Our Community

As members of the IT community, we are also an important part of our local community. Through the MWLUG 2016 Community Outreach Program, we are raising money for organizations that help the local community. Each year we identify an organization in which our contribution would have the greatest impact on the local community of the host city.

Thanks to the generosity of the Four Seasons, we will be raffling off a weekend stay at the Four Seasons - Austin as the grand prize. Please take the opportunity to help the local community. Each raffle ticket is $10 and you can buy them at the registration desk starting Thursday morning. We will announce the winners during the lunch on Friday.

Over the years we have raised over $10,000 for a number of local food banks and the Salvation Army. We are pleased to announce the MWLUG 2016 Community Outreach Recipient is Swan Song, a non-profit organization that grants musical wishes to terminally ill individuals.

About Swan Songs

Swan Songs fulfills musical wishes at the end of life by organizing private concerts for individuals with a terminal illness.  At their request, a favorite style of music or musicians is brought directly to the home or facility.  The concert allows patient, family and friends to focus beyond the illness and come together through the medium of music.

Swan Songs grew from a small gathering in 1992 when Christine Albert was asked to sing for a young man facing early death from a terminal illness.  That experience inspired other concerts and in 2005 Swan Songs was founded in Austin, Texas to fulfill musical wishes at the end of life.
