Software Freedom Conservancy

Attend Conservancy Supporter Night on Friday before FOSDEM 2015!

Conservancy invites everyone to its annual Celebratory Dinner

January 20, 2015

Software Freedom Conservancy, the organization behind Git, Samba, Wine, Inkscape and many other FLOSS projects announces and welcomes everyone to its first annual Supporter Night, a community appreciation event and fundraising dinner on Friday 30 January 2015 at 18:30 (6:30PM) in Brussels, Belgium on the night before FOSDEM.

Supporter Night, partially sponsored by Google with additional support from HP, celebrates Conservancy's Supporters and all nonprofit, community-run free and open source software software projects. Supporter Night, which seeks to raise funds for Conservancy's continuing work supporting such projects, provides a prime opportunity for FOSDEM attendees to network, have fun, and discuss important software freedom topics over dinner with each other and Conservancy's executive team — even before the conference begins.

Organized within walking distance of the “beer event”, our exciting Supporter Night will occur at Drug Opera, an English-style tavern in Brussels. Tickets are now available for a starting price of US$40. (Annual Conservancy Supporters may attend without an additional donation!) Attendees are however encouraged to donate an additional amount (if they are able) to support Conservancy and its important work for software freedom.

Purchase your ticket now! Conservancy expects the event will sell out, since space is limited. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door for €50. The ticket price includes a three-course dinner and one drink.

Conservancy's Executive Director Karen Sandler (who will deliver the opening keynote at FOSDEM 2015) and President Bradley Kuhn (who will also speak at FOSDEM) will attend Supporter Night, and look forward to great discussion with Conservancy's Supporters. Supporter Night will help us raise funds to continue to support our projects, said Karen, I can't wait to see everyone there!
