Remembering Katrina @ Happy Hour, 29 August
It is hard to believe that it’s been a year since Katrina blew through our town after devastating New Orleans!
Andre Natta is organizing a 5pm Happy Hour @ WorkPlay in the midst of several events that day. Once you read his post about the event, you might jump to the conclusion that he just wants to have a bunch of you over to celebrate his birthday. However, I know him better than that. He is PASSIONATE about what he does and *this* effort is focused on reminding us ALL about the plight of what’s going on down in New Orleans 360+ days later.
I’ll be paying for Andre’s beers, so don’t need to feel obligated to buy him a birthday beer. Just come help him celebrate the occassion by making a donation (or two) to the cause. I’m bringing a laptop computer that was recently donated to TechBirmingham as a result of our Ecycling Day effort. Specific needs are itemized here, but you could help out by contributing a license of Windows XP for the laptop (it’s been wiped utterly clean) and maybe a WiFi PCMCIA card for the unit?!?
Come one, come all! Stay after the happy hour and maybe schlep around with us at Confederate Motorcycle‘s new website launch party!
p.s. – WorkPlay is a free wireless hotspot, so bring your laptop and blog from there!
