Funding an adventure like this is expensive! For PiWars this year we are bringing 7 CNM Students and me (CNM Faculty) from Albuquerque, New Mexico USA to Cambridge, UK.
We would like to thank our many sponsors this past year, PiBorg, CDC Enterprises, LightHouse and the CNM Executive Council of Students (ECOS).
Additionally we conducted fundraising activities throughout the year with Groupraise https://www.groupraise.com/, Goodwill of NM https://www.goodwillnm.org/, Kelly's Jo Design by Wine https://www.kellyjodesignsbywine.co/, Mister Car Wash https://mistercarwash.com/, Custom Ink https://www.customink.com/, Chello Grill https://chellogrill.com/, California Pastrami http://www.capastrami.com/, and California Pizza Kitchen https://www.cpk.com/.
Additionally students going on this trip contributed approximately $700 each to help offset the costs.
And... Because of the generous donation (equal to all other sources combined) by the CNM Executive Council of Students we have successfully raised all the necessary funds to send the team to Cambridge, UK to compete in #Piwars 2020 on March 28-29, 2020.
All combined we raised approximately $12,000 for this trip.
OUR SINCERE THANKS TO ECOS AND ALL WHO DONATED TO THIS EFFORT!!!
