MWLUG 2011 Community Outreach Donation and Special Thanks to Meridian IT

MWLUG 2011 was the second year of our MWLUG Community Outreach Program.  Each year we raise money for a food bank in the area where we have our MWLUG conference.  This year the conference was in Milwaukee and the receipt of donation was the Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.  We raised $1000 for the food bank which translates to 5000 meals for the hungry.  The raffle prize was donated by the Sheraton Milwaukee-Brookfield hotel and was a weekend stay with breakfast.  We recently received a nice thank you letter from the President of Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.

I would like to thanks everyone who participated in the raffle or donated their registration fee to the outreach program.  I would like to give a special thanks to one of our MWLUG 2011 sponsor, Meridian IT.  Beside being a one of our Gold Sponsors, Meridian IT was also kind enough to donate $100 to MWLUG Community Outreach Program and help our community.  Remember, our community extends beyond our Yellow Bubble and it is important to be part of the larger community.  Thanks again everyone.
