DECEMBER 2020 AND JANUARY 2021 LUNCHEONS

Both the December 2020 and January 2021 luncheons have been cancelled due to COVID 19 restrictions.  Please check your email or the Presidents message on our home page for more information.

SHRIMP BINGO 2021

SHRIMP BINGO 2021 UPDATE

The E-Club Board has made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Shrimp Bingo Fundraiser that had been planned for February 5, 2021. Considering the ongoing effects of the COVID 19 pandemic and all of the unknowns regarding possible meeting restrictions at the time of the event, it was determined that the health and financial risks were just too great to hold the event during the traditional time of year.

Limits placed on gatherings not only restricts the event’s ability to serve as the social event of the year for our profession but decimates its viability as a fundraiser for scholarships.

ECKC will continue to explore alternatives that will allow us to continue the social and fundraising missions of our club. We may elect to reschedule Shrimp Bingo 2021 to later in the year or hold a virtual event. Stay tuned for more information!

Every year, the Engineers Club of Kansas City distributes approximately $70,000 in scholarships to local students in ABET accredited programs. As a club it is a source of great pride, as an engineering community it is funding our future. Undergraduate engineering financial assistance is needed now more than ever. We hope everyone that planned on attending or sponsoring this year’s event will consider continuing their generosity to the scholarship fund in the absence of the Shrimp Bingo. We are working to develop a user-friendly way for both businesses and individuals to have the opportunity to make donations to the Scholarship Fund. Please stay tuned and watch your emails for additional information.

We appreciate your past support of Shrimp Bingo and we look forward to reciting the oath together again in the very near future.
