In about 2 months, 25,000 technology hungry people will descend upon Austin for their yearly pilgrimage to the ultimate “spring break for geeks”. Otherwise known as sxsw-interactive, the most overstimulating & overwhelming week of the year. (yay!)
To provide a break from the chaos, The Beacon Lounge is returning for our 5th year as an oasis in the middle of the madness for the non profit community at sxsw and other cause-focused geekeratti. While the comfy seating, awesome vibe, great company and steady flow of food & drink (Thanks to our amazing partners) keeps everyone sane, we never want to forget what has brought us all together in the first place: The desire to create lasting social good in the world. While having massive (sleepless) amounts of fun, that is.
The Beacon exists for our dynamic community at sxsw, but also because of it. And so, our theme was born: Play hard. Do good. From raising money for Reach out and Read Texas at breakfast (thanks to the wonderful people at the Colorado Health Foundation) to happy hours (sponsored by our dear friends at Salsa labs) that benefit Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, giving back has always been the cornerstone of The Beacon. While you’re having a blast in Austin, we hope you can also help us make a real difference for real people.
