December 15th 2010 Fundraising Event

Partimus.org is holding an initial fundraiser and meet and greet to build a fundraising committee on December 15, 2010, at 5 pm at 1601 Turk Street, at the Creative Arts Charter School, in the Board Room. The purpose of this meeting is to create a trusted group of dedicated volunteers who will focus on fundraising for our Linux-schools efforts. We will be providing modest refreshments, and we will be asking for a suggested donation of $25.00 to kick off our fundraising drive, to be made when you make your reservation at our eventbrite registration page. If you are unable to make a donation at this time and still wish to attend, you may select the "Enthusiast" ticket option, which is free.
We will not be asking for too much of your time. We will only be asking you to share your contacts with us, and help us do outreach to get your friends and neighbors to make small but meaningful financial contributions to our efforts.
One of the specific goals of the 12/15/10 fundraiser will be to prepare for a larger fundraiser to be held in the spring at the Creative Arts Charter School. That fundraiser will be a large installfest festival, and will have booths for Bay Area open source-related groups, such as local Linux user groups and local businesses, both large and small. We will have barbeques and games for kids. It will be a fun, family-oriented event that will have the dual purpose of raising money and soliciting hardware donations, which will be triaged on the spot and we will install Linux on machines that are brought in, so that we can turn those machine right around and install them in the 6 Bay Area Schools where we have a presence.
Partimus will be accepting donations during this event, both monetary and of computer hardware, please see the Donate page for more details about the hardware Partimus is in need of.
