    Hi Sophia:

    Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately the event is not free because we have out of town speakers (one from Houston and one from Taiwan). The cost is $25.00 which includes snack and lunch. If you are a student or you are not working, the cost is $10.00. If you cannot afford $10.00 at this time, let me know and I will work something out for you.

    Best regards,
