Revenge of the Nerds Fundraiser Benefitting Code Crew

By September 11, 2017Events, Fundraising Opportunity

Grab your pockets protectors and don your nerdiest fashions because you’re invited to a smarty party on September 23rd.

Join the leaders of CodeCrew for an evening of awesome music, delicious food, and refreshing beverages during the Revenge of the Nerds Rooftop Fundraiser.

  • When: Saturday, April 21st (6PM-9PM)
  • Where: Grizzlies Prep Charter School// 168 Jefferson Ave.
  • Cost: $50-$75

All proceeds will benefit CodeCrew’s efforts to bring computer science education to underrepresented youth in Memphis.

Since it’s beginning in 2015, the local organization has taught over 600 students, 90% being African American and Latino and 41% being female, to code through summer camps and after-school programs.

“We want to give our students every opportunity achieve,” said Audrey Jones, one of three CODECREW founders. “Whether it be pairing them with a mentor for one on one sessions or giving them hands on lessons with certified professionals, these kids are getting tangible exposure. Who knows? We could be working with future CEO’s and entrepreneurs of the city.”
