As some of you may know from our past events, the CWU is run strictly on volunteer time and effort, so the ability to make these events a success is based solely on the power of the people.
For this event, funding is needed for Airfare, Lodging, Venue rental, Seating, A/V rental, beer, marketing (Print + Digital) and merch.
