We are proud to announce the Ninth Annual PyLadies Charity Auction. PyCon 2019’s auction was a huge success raising over $35K! Over 55 items from sponsors and fellow attendees were auctioned off.
This is a fun and entertaining way to support the PyLadies community. A good sense of humor is recommended and bidding is not required.
The PyLadies Auction is taking place Saturday, April 18, 2020, at 6:30pm in the Westin Hotel, 1000 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA. The Westin is connected to the convention center by a convenient walkway.
A small cover charge ($5 USD) is required for refreshments and can be paid as part of your PyCon registration or at the auction door.
Light food will be provided, as well as a free drink ticket and a cash bar.
The format of the auction is a mix of live bidding and raffle prizes. The intention is to have fun and laugh.
Sponsors will have the opportunity to donate auction items for the event. If you have any questions about the auction or are interested in participating, please contact our Auction Coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that donations of guns, alcohol, cars, or houses will not be accepted.
Contributing sponsors will be highlighted in the marketing of the event and also during the event. Proceeds will go to PyLadies. PyLadies is an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Their mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events, and social gatherings.
PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world. Anyone with an interest in Python is encouraged to participate! Check out local meetups here: http://www.pyladies.com/locations/.
