Digi-Bridge Announces #TBT 2.0: Connect to Disconnect

720 932 David Jessup

Dear Friends,

Digi-Bridge announces its second #TBT (Throw Back Thursday) event on Thursday, November 10 from 6-8 p.m. with the theme of “Connect to Disconnect” in an effort to raise awareness about the digital divide. The event will take place at Earl’s Grocery in Elizabeth. A limited number of tickets are available: http://bit.ly/digibridgetbt2.

It’s estimated that as many as 70,000 Charlotte-Mecklenburg youth go home to a disconnected household each evening. This reality requires all of us to consider how we might engage to support our future.

The night of the event we’ll enjoy snacks and beverages from the 1980s – the era that brought the Internet to life. Digi-Bridge encourages guests to dress for the decade, take part in some good ol’ fashioned conversation and networking, and experience what it’s like to be without access by tendering phones at the door (for the duration of the event).

There will also be opportunities for attendees to support Digi-Bridge’s efforts to #bridgethedivide:

  • $25 Supply snacks for a #STEAMSaturdays class
  • $50 Sponsor a #STEAMSaturdays scholar
  • $150 Contribute a Chromebook for a scholar
  • $300 Sponsor a #STEAMSummer scholar

See you at #TBT!
