Nerd Night @ Geekdom Benefiting Elf Louise
November 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Join us at the Geekdom Event Centre for our Second Friday event and THIRD BIRTHDAY PARTY! We will be playing board and card games of all types. Feel free to bring your own, or use the resident game library!
We are collecting item donations at this event to benefit The Elf Louise Christmas Project!. Nerd Nights are always free to attend but donations are requested. We’re hoping to collect:
New, unwrapped toys of all types for children ages 0-12
Each year, more than 4,500 volunteer Elves come together to wrap and deliver 60,000 toys to some of Bexar County’s most needy children.
Elf Louise recipients receive gifts that may not have great monetary value, but which carry with them the spirit of Christmas and the good wishes of the community. Volunteers, through involvement and contributions, discover or re-discover the richness of the spirit of Christmas, the spirit of concern for others, a spirit which transcends religious affiliations. The Elf Louise Christmas Project is for the benefit of the entire community: no project of this magnitude can long endure if there is not some significant good coming from it that benefits the community as a whole.
The appeal of this Project lies in part in its very personal focus. Nothing is done assembly-line style. Presents are chosen and wrapped for each child in each family; Santa, to the extent that is possible, visits each family in its own home. All volunteers–with their time, their energy and their ideas–are welcome; diversity is encouraged.
The greatest need for toys is for the youngest children. No guns or simulated weapons allowed. Please make sure your gift is unwrapped as two gifts are given to each child and we need to avoid duplications!
Please come out to join us in supporting this worthy cause. Thanks! Hope to see you there. There will be cake!
