Midwest Mac BBQ

$1,797 of $1,685 goal

Raised by 33 people in 50 months
A problem to be solved: No Macworld this year.

The Apple community is unlike any other and I wanted to do something to fill the void. I am centrally located (Chicago), love Apple and BBQ!

How about a Midwest Mac BBQ?

So I'm throwing open my backyard on June 20th, 2015 to the community. I am thrilled at the response and some people have asked how they can help. Some people are bringing food or drinks, but others are coming from out of town and offered to help offset the cost of hosting, food, etc.

If you want to help (and remember, this is totally optional) please feel free to donate. All the proceeds will be used to offset the cost of hosting. Anything above and beyond cost will be donated 50/50 between The Cradle and Treehouse Humane Society.

Thank you so much for your generosity!

A note to Mark: THANK YOU!! To hit the goal this early is amazing. Thank you to ALL of you too. I'll be getting the personal messages out soon :)

I did up the goal since our group is about double the size of what we expected. That's awesome! So I'm getting more chairs, tables, tents and of course food/drink
