Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) Week at LanierWorld!

Monday, June 2nd – Sunday, June 8th
10 am – close everyday

DONATE a used smart device (iPhone, iTouch, Kindle Droid, etc.) and get into LanierWorld for FREE!

That’s right, we said FOR FREE!! What’s up? Why are we collecting used technology?

The Forsyth BYOT Benefit has started its second successful year of supporting the children and the BYOT technology initiative in the Forsyth County Schools. In their first year, 2013, they were able to deliver almost $30,000 to the schools and the county has already purchased 80 Kajeet SmartSpots that will allow that many families to have internet in their homes where it was previously missing. How awesome is that?!

In 2014, they’ve set their sights on a loftier goal and believe that the generous residents and companies of Forsyth County will again show the community how much it cares. We’re inviting you to check out this website, see what the Forsyth BYOT Benefit have done, and decide if you’d like to be a part of this very important effort. And get a little water park fun along the way.

Don’t have some older smart-tech to donate? Not to worry! You can also participate by using the coupon below to receive $5 0FF of LanierWorld daily admission price!

Print this off or show it on your phone!

Let’s do this awesome thing! It’s for the children!
