LUNCHEONS CANCELLATION NOTICE

The E-Club Board has made the decision to cancel our regularly scheduled luncheons for the remainder of the 2020-2021 Club-year (through May 2021). With the current infection rate of the COVID-19 virus and the time projected to make significant progress on the vaccination program, the board’s consensus is that it is not an appropriate time to be holding our monthly luncheons. We will be monitoring the situation over the summer and hope to resume with our monthly luncheons in September 2021.

We continue to wish you all well as we all deal with these difficult and unusual times.

Thank you for your continued support of E-Club!

Engineers Club Board of Directors

SCHOLARSHIP DONATION OPPORTUNITIES

As you are aware, the E-Club Board made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Shrimp Bingo Fundraiser planned for February 5, 2021.  We considered postponing the event to later in the year or hosting a virtual Bingo event.  Based on the current state of the pandemic situation and projections for possible impacts continuing well into 2021, postponing the event to later in the year was determined to be impractical and not a viable option.  A virtual event was investigated, but would be completely out of character with the in-person social nature of Shrimp Bingo and was also considered not to be a viable alternative.  As such, the Board made the decision not to schedule any alternative Shrimp Bingo events for 2021, but focus on planning for the 2022 event.

 

Annually, the Engineers Club of Kansas City has been able to provide scholarships to local students in ABET accredited programs.  In 2020 we were able to grant scholarships totally $66,500.  With the cancellation of the 2021 Shrimp Bingo event, our primary source of revenue for our Student Assistance Fund is eliminated for the year.  Undergraduate engineering financial assistance is needed now more than ever.

 

In the absence of Shrimp Bingo in 2021, we hope everyone that planned on attending or sponsoring this year’s event will consider continuing their generosity with a donation to our scholarship fund.  Donation checks can be mailed to our Shrimp Bingo Coordinator, Melissa Prenger at the following address:

 

Melissa Prenger

City of Prairie Village

3535 Somerset Dr.

Prairie Village, KS  66208

 

Please make checks payable to: Engineers Club of Kansas City

 

Please feel free to contact any of the Board of Directors for additional information or any questions.

 

We appreciate your past support of Shrimp Bingo and we look forward to reciting the oath together again in 2022.

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.
