It looks like with the website crash all of my posts about this have magically disappeared. So here we go again!
I've made arrangements for us to be able to have a spot at PDX LAN in July. The dates are July 11-14. The organizer for the event is very familiar with what we do and was excited to have us distribute at the event. We will have a high traffic table area available at the event and the organizers will be letting gamers know that we are there for snacks/treats! They have not had success with people distributing items while others are gaming and would rather gamers just come to us. Which I think will work out just fine.
The event has been sold out for months with 550 tickets. For those who don't know, PDX LAN has a history of doing some really awesome philanthropy. Last year they raised 37,000 pounds of food for a local homeless shelter. Bam! Our kind of people.

We will be given 2 passes for brigadiers for cookie efforts. I'm going to try to get as much time off work for this as possible, but probably the most I can manage will be 2 days. My brother is also going to help with distribution. I'm looking for people in the PDX area that might be interested in baking and anyone who might be interested in working the table at the event. My goal for the event is $3000. Lofty, I know, but these gamers are going to be hungry!
