Join the Drunk Unkles as they help kick start a new chapter for the Women in AV (WAVE) based in the Tri-State area. Come meet, greet and learn more about the Women in AV’s new tri-state chapter and enjoy the music of the night as the Drunk Unkles take the stage.
Proceeds from the evening will go to establish a WAVE scholarship for a deserving female systems professional from the tri-state area identified by her peers as an emerging industry leader. The scholarship will be administered by the NSCA Education Foundation and the recipient will be awarded a complimentary registration to the annual NSCA Business and Leadership Conference. This is the Drunk Unkles’ 8th year supporting the NSCA Education Foundation. During the event, attendees will find a night of mingling with colleagues and peers, cocktails and some classic blues tunes in a unique country western atmosphere.
The Drunk Unkles started more than 11 years ago as a casual hobby. They performed their first charity fundraising event to help support the family of an industry peer who unexpectedly passed away. The NSCA Education Foundation has continued this tradition of supporting industry members during InfoComm, the NSCA Systems Integration Expo, individual member causes and other fundraising events throughout the year. The Drunk Unkles, made up entirely of AV industry peers include:
- Felix Robinson (Angel) – AVI-SPL
- “Unkle” Steve Emspak (Aerosmith Songsmith) – Shen Milsom & Wilke
- Marc Hochlerin (Mazarin) – Cerami & Associates
- Mike “The Pie” Phillips – Hudson Marketing Inc.
- Johnny “Bottom” Cardone – Cardone Solomon and Associates
- “Aunt” Lisa Wenger – Bosch Communications Systems
