Stamford, CT | Added on June 24, 2014 At 01:28 PM

Stamford's tech and startup venture space, the Stamford Innovation Center (SIC), will be raising funds for two important charities at the Center’s inaugural Geeks and Nerds Summer Gala, this Thursday, June 26.  SIC describes the event as a "raucous and lively gala... an evening of cocktails, dancing, food, live music, DJs along with Ping Pong and other games"  

Costumes are encouraged, and in a release SIC said, "...there are reports of costume themes including Science Fiction, Super Heroes, Star Trek, Game of Thrones and others.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit two local charities,  the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center and Future 5 of Stamford.  Sponsors include, headquartered in Norwalk, Conn, and the Connecticut Technology Council.

Future 5 is a Stamford-based company founded in 2009 to help connect area high school students to mentors, community, coaches, jobs, colleges and others interested in helping young people reach their potential.

The CT Veterans Legal Center devotes itself to helping veterans recovering from mental illness and homelessness to receive legal advise and overcome barriers to housing, income and healthcare.  It is the first legal resource group in the nation staffed and housed within a Veterans Administration mental health facility.

The Gala will run from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. at SIC headquarters in Stamford's Old Town Hall, 175 Atlantic Street. 

Ticket prices are $40 in advance, $50 at the door.  Additional contributions are encouraged to further help the donations to Future 5 and CT Veterans Legal Center.  Tickets are on sale at the following URL:
