Macro Connect will be hosting our fourth annual City Year fundraiser at Bookie's Bar & Grille on Thursday, June 9th. At last year's fundraiser, we raised $6,500 for City Year, which provided a full day of leadership training for Corp Members, one month of enrichment programs for 20 students, and one week of tutoring for 120 students. Our goal this year is to raise more than $8,000 and we hope you'll help us get there!
