It’s that time of year, again. Time for the annual Central Ohio Azure / Microsoft user group holiday party!!!

Once again, the Central Ohio Azure user group is joining with three other Microsoft technology focused user groups in Central Ohio to host an annual holiday party. The party is a joint effort of the Central Ohio .NET User Group, the Columbus App Dev User Group, the Buckeye SharePoint User Group, and the Central Ohio Azure user group. The event will be on Monday, December 10th from 6pm – 8pm at the Improving Enterprises office. A $5 ticket is required for attendance.

The annual holiday party is a great way for you to network with other geeks in the Central Ohio technology community. Plus, there will be plenty of board games, ping pong, and food! We’ll also be raffling off a few fantastic prizes (more details on those to be announced soon).

As in year’s past, we’ll also be supporting a few local charities. Your $5 ticket will go to support TechCorps. Additionally, you can bring a toy (or two, or three) to support OSU’s Toy Adaption Program. You can also bring food to donate to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. That’s a lot of giving!!! Each item you donate earns you another ticket to the prize raffle. For example, if you have a $5 + one toy + one food item, that will earn you three tickets. The more toys and food you bring, the more tickets you earn!

Please purchase a ticket now by going to There you can purchase your ticket, and also learn more about suggested food donations and toys for the Toy Adaption Program. You must purchase a ticket to be eligible for the raffle, and you must be present to win.
