NY TECH Ping Pong Message Board › TWO BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM NY TECH PING PONG (#nytpp)

TWO BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM NY TECH PING PONG (#nytpp)

A former member
Hi NYTPPer,
Two announcements about this year's holiday tournament:

1 - VENUE UPDATE AND DATE CHANGE
Although the holiday season has made securing a venue tougher than expected, we successfully secured a location in Flatiron, Manhattan that not only has a number of ping pong tables, but also has billiards, HDTVs (for the sports enthusiasts), two full kitchens, and multiple private bars.

VENUE UPATE: We will be hosting this year's Battle of Silicon Alley at Slate Plus on 54 West 21st Street (between 5th/6th Ave).

DATE CHANGE: Based on feedback from the group about competing holiday events, the date of the event will shift from Wednesday, Dec. 14th to Sunday, Dec 18th from 2:00pm - 5:30pm. Coincidentally, this change works favorably in our direction because we were able to work out a complimentary agreement with Slate Plus for this Meetup and future Meetups to come.


2 - NYTPP NON-PROFIT DONATION
100% of the proceeds from the holiday tournament will be donated to New York Needs You, a NYC-based non-profit focused on providing academic and professional skills to 1st generation college students in New York City (http://www.newyorknee...­. They will use our donation to purchase netbooks and upgraded equipment for the students in need majoring in the Science, Math, Engineering, and Technology (SMET) fields.

We are very proud of being able to structure an agreement with Slate Plus that will allow us to pass a substantial amount of the donations raised from the event to the New York Needs You organization.

DONATION GOAL: Our goal as an organization is to raise $1,800 dollars, which will potentially be matched 3:1 by the non-profit's participating partners to purchase the necessary amount of netbooks for the SMET students.

DONATION REQUEST: To reach our goal, we are requesting a $20 dollar friendly donation to participate in this year's holiday tournament. Donations will be collected directly by New York Needs You representatives both online and at the door (more details to come).

Thank you for being committed to the NY Tech Community and being charitable to those in need during the holiday season.


ONE MORE ADDITION
Later this week, we will release the structure and rules of the tournament and announce the three ways you can end up as one of the sixteen finalist vying to be crowned champion of Silicon Alley.

WANT TO HELP ORGANIZE: If you would like to help co-organize the event, please feel free to shoot me a message on meetup and we'll get you looped in.
