Today’s the Day for #TBT: Connect to Disconnect!

704 1024 David Jessup

Dear Friends,

It’s almost time to “Throwback” with Digi-Bridge today from  6-8 pm at Queen Park Social. This is our chance to “Connect to Disconnect” in an effort to raise awareness about the digital divide.

It’s estimated that one third of Charlotte-Mecklenburg scholars do not have access to an internet-connected device at home. This reality requires all of us to consider how we might engage to support their future, because as a community, their future is ours.

Join us for beverages and light bites in a hip setting straight out of the 1980’s – the era that brought the Internet to life. Digi-Bridge encourages guests to dress for the decade (with a prize for best dressed), 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. Don’t worry, you’ll get them back in time for a very special announcement at 7pm!

Tickets are limited so register now at http://bit.ly/digibridgetbt3.

Please contact Zach McRae (zach@digi-bridge.org) with any questions and follow us on social media for updates at @digibridgeus.

See you at #TBT!

Cheers,

DJ
