Celebrating the life of Igal @igalko Koshevoy, April 21

As was his ongoing wont and skill, Igal Koshevoy will once again be bringing the Portland startup, open source, and tech communities together. To celebrate his life of making connections, building community, and creating incredible tools to help foster those communities.

We are planning a Celebration of Life for our friend and colleague, Igal Koshevoy. We welcome all who wish to participate, volunteer, and contribute to these efforts.

Igal’s memorial will be Sunday, April 21st from 4-7pm at First Unitarian Church, 1211 SW Main St, Portland, OR (map). Please RSVP at Eventbrite so we can plan accordingly. You can sign up as a volunteer when you RSVP, or by contacting carolynn@tenx.org.

If you have memories of Igal you’d like to share, his friends have set up a site for sharing those thoughts:

We have set up koshevoy.net to help our community celebrate Igal’s life. Please share memories, photos or words of remembrance, and read what others have shared. We have also created a Facebook page, and on Twitter we request that you use the hashtag #igalko or his twitter handle @igalko.

If you would like to help cover costs and help establish a fund to further Igal’s ideals, you can contribute funds to assist.

For more information, visit Igal’s memorial site. To attend the gathering of Igal’s friends, please RSVP for the celebration of Igal’s life.
