One of primary focus  for 2013 was to encourage more girls to take in an interest in technology. The first step in doing this was to invite students from all levels to join the Girl Geek Dinners. So far we have had students from over 5 different institutions join us. Our primary sponsor, eMagination Info Solutions, sponsors a few tickets every dinner for students to attend. This month we have a quite few more students attending and would like to call upon your support for any amount you are happy to contribute. Thank you.

With windows spanning the length of the restaurant guests can enjoy the magnificent views, fresh sea breeze and sound of the nearby Atlantic Ocean.
