GTC WRAPS UP WITH PARTY FOR A PURPOSE

by Tonie Hansen

The GPU Technology Conference (GTC) is just two years old but we’ve already started a great tradition of partnering with conference attendees to give back to society. Case in point: last night we held a GTC closing party at which we raised funds for a wonderful organization called HopeLab (learn more: here).

Several hundred conference goers packed a downtown San Jose club to celebrate the end of an intense week, donate to charity and rock out to live tunes. NVIDIA’s house band played hits from Aerosmith, Muse, Queen and more, and featured special guest-bassist Rudy Sarzo of Blue Oyster Cult.

We’re proud to announce that we raised over $4,000 last night, which will be matched by the NVIDIA Foundation. Hope Lab will use the funds to distribute Re-Mission, a videogame designed to help adolescents and young adults stick to their cancer and antiobiotic regimens, to children all over the world.

Thanks again to those who were able to join us, and we look forward to seeing you at GTC next year.
