May the 4th Be With You
Not so long ago, in a galaxy pretty close to home...
TechPoint Foundation for Youth (TPF4Y) decided to bring you a celebration of all things Star Wars: May the 4th Be With You, also widely known as Star Wars Day!
TPF4Y is a nonprofit dedicated to inspiring girls, minorities, and kids from low-income backgrounds through hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs. The proceeds from this event support the work we do with underserved students throughout Indiana.
How to get involved
STEP 1: Scroll down to check out the list of participating corporate Sponsors - Do you see your company listed?
Yep! There's our logo! Awesome - move on to step 2, Young Jedi!
Yep! There's our logo under "social media partner." Great - this means they're helping spread the word about this cool event, but chose not to sponsor this year. You'll need to buy your own tickets so move on to step 3!
Nope, I'm don't see them... No problem! You and your family can participate on your own! Move on to step 3! Think your office would want to participate? Email Maggie Cline to learn more about getting involved at Maggie@TechPointYouth.org!
STEP 2: reserve some of your company's tickets for our may the 4th party!
If your company is a sponsor, they will have a number of free tickets to give out to employees and spouses (kids 12 & under are free!). You'll still need to register here, but please contact your HR or marketing department for the promo code you'll need at checkout.
