LANFest – Laclede’s LAN 16 – March 12 & 13 at St. Louis University – to Benefit St. Louis ByteWorks
For gamers, a LAN party is a great way to connect with local folks with shared interests. For gamers in the Midwest, Laclede’s LAN 16, is THE opportunity to enjoy a weekend of connecting with fellow gamers, all for charity. This event will be held onMarch 12 and 13, 2016 at St. Louis University. Laclede’s LAN will generously donate proceeds from ticket sales to St. Louis Byte Works and additional proceeds to fellow St. Louis nonprofit, Angel Baked Cookies.
A part of the LANFest mission is to provide benefit and support to nonprofit organizations. We’d like to take a moment to discuss the organization that will receive most of the benefit from the ticket sales of the Laclede’s LAN 16 event. One organization that our staff has chosen is St. Louis ByteWorks.
Through the Earn-a-Computer program, St. Louis ByteWorks helps local kids learn the skills to successfully operate a computer, gain experience with various types of software, learn some networking skills, and learn how to safely search the Internet and send and receive E-mail. These skills are designed to extend their knowledge of the computer and its uses as well as build confidence.
