Tech Gives Back 2011 – 40 Companies, 500 Volunteers
Today marks New Englands first ever Tech Gives Back day. We’re proud to help organize and host the day alongside Boston Cares and Technology Underwriting Greater Good (TUGG). 40 of Boston’s leading innovating companies have teams volunteering at a dozen non-profits in and around Boston — with a total 500 volunteers participating.
Following this tech citizenship day is an after party from 5pm to 9pm at the Citi Performing Arts Center (former Wang Theater). You can still register for the after party if you weren’t able to participate in projects with a $25 ticket. All ticket proceeds going to the startup non-profits that TUGG funds every year, and it provides you with free food and drink (wine, beer and Avion — the tequila featured in popular HBO television series Entourage), live band entertainment, and obviously Boston’s brightest innovators as company.
Thank you to all the tech and creative companies in the Boston area for taking a day away from their product roadmaps, launches, partnerships, and otherwise to give back to the community. We look forward to seeing you tonight! On Twitter, the hashtag for the days festivities is #TechGivesBack.
