Bricks for Water

Gateway LUG is proud to be invited to a unique first-time event.  One of our members and his wife are running in the London marathon in April with the goal of raising $50,000 to support clean water and sanitation efforts in the developing world, through the charity World Vision International.  To help meet this goal, they are hosting a one-day LEGO event in Edwardsville, IL with all proceeds going to the charitable donation (they are covering overhead expenses themselves).  More information can be found on the Bricks for Water Facebook page, including a Facebook Event for the show..
