2018 Christmas Dinner
December 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for our Tenth Annual Christmas Social & Networking event at the Green Bean Restaurant and Pub.
Once again, we have secured a great location exclusively for our own use for the evening. Each year, we forego tech-talk, feeds and speeds to relax and get to know our fellow CIC members a little better. Spouses and guests are welcome to join us, but please leave your pets and under 18 children at home!
To celebrate the festive spirit and a successful year in 2017, we have kept your dinner ticket cost affordable – only $50/person or $90/couple.
Jackie’s team has whipped up a special package that includes appetizers, dinner, dessert and one free drink ticket (cash bar after that at special discount rates – don’t tell owners Steve or Owen!) Reception starts at 6 pm and dinner will be served at 7 pm.
For the third year in a row, we will be having a silent auction for some fabulous items, events and gifts – so be sure to bring your cheque book. Proceeds from the silent auction help fund CIC operations.
NEW – For the first time, we’ve partnered with YYC Tech Gives (yyctechgives.org) to support the Calgary Food Bank through the CBC Calgary Food Bank campaign. We will be accepting donations of food and/or cash.
For this year, we have set a goal to raise $500. It’s easily doable if as few as 25 CIC members donate at least $20 each. We can provide you with an official tax receipt and all donations of cash and non-perishable food count toward attaining our goal.
If you’d like to join the CIC Team, you can register yourself or support one of our members here: https://calgaryfoodbank.akaraisin.com/YYCTechGives2017/TeamCIC
Let’s see if we can help put the CBC over their $1MM goal for 2017.
While there is free on-street parking after hours, please read the parking restrictions carefully to avoid having your car towed during the festivities. If you prefer, there is heated, underground parking in the Core (off 4th St SW NB between 7th and 8th Avenues).
If you’re using public transit, the Green Bean is on several major routes that run along 6th Ave westbound and the C-Train station is only a block away. Please keep in mind strict drinking and driving laws are in effect and “Check Stops” will be out in force during the holiday season. So, if you choose to partake, make sure you have a designated driver, grab an Uber/taxi or take transit home!
There will be plenty of coffee, tea and non-alcoholic beverages available for those choosing not to drink. It promises to be a great evening and we look forward to seeing you on the 19th!
