Building Our Community

As members of the IT community, we are all an important part of our local community. As part of the MWLUG 2014 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 community.

This year with the help of Devin Olson our boots on the ground, we have selected Kid's Food Basket as our MWLUG 2014 Community Outreach Program Recipient. We will be raffling off a weekend stay at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel as the grand prize along with signed copies of Virgil Westdale's book. Please take the opportunity to help feed the needy kids in Western Michigan. Each raffle ticket is $10 and you can buy them at the registration desk starting Thursday morning. We will announce the winners on just after the Speed Sponsoring on Thursday afternoon. We can no longer use Eventbrite for the raffle so please bring exact change. For ever $1 we raise we will provide 5 meals to kids.
