And it’s all thanks to you!

Seriously, without the generosity of the DC Tech community and our wonderful partners, the CircleBack launch party would have been nothing. We owe it all to you all, and we’re so grateful you joined us!

The event itself was held in the gorgeous 1776 incubator space in Washington DC on Wednesday, February 25th, 2015. We had wonderful speakers–CircleBack CEO Manoj Ramnani, Pay It Forward Foundation President Charley Johnson, and Comedian Dan Nainan–, the incredible DJ Andrew Bucket, hors d’oeuvres by Susan Gage catering, beer by DC Brau, the support of Square1 Bank, the amazing staff of General Assembly lending a hand… and an amazing time was had by all.

And, while all the excitement was taking place, everyone rubbing elbows with everyone else in the DC Tech elite, photographer Carly Arnwine was on the scene taking pictures (which you can peruse here).

Throughout the night, we raised money for our #CBForward campaign and already have the funds to help over 100 schools spread the “Pay It Forward” message. We have a long way to go, but with supporters like you, we know we’ll make a positive impact on every child in America.

What we’re trying to say is this: we at CircleBack have never felt the love like we did Wednesday night, and we’ll never forget it. Seriously.

From everyone at the CircleBack Team, thank you!

A special thanks to all our partners for making this event happen: The Pay It Forward Foundation, Square1 Bank, 1776, General Assembly, Comedian Dan Nainan, DJ Andrew Bucket, Carly Arnwine Photography, & Shanthony Design
