The Tesla Spirit Awards Benefit is dedicated to creating a TeslaTalk.com – webbinner dedicated to broadcasting live interviews, lectures and conversations about topics based on Tesla scientific inventions - alternative energy sourcing, electrical engineering, and wireless technology.
Please join us at the Tesla Spirit Awards Benefit Reception endorsed by HRH Prince Philip of Serbia (the son of HRH Crown Prince Alexander of Serbia) and honoring Jane Alcorn, President of Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe for her commitment to save and restore the Tesla laboratory on Long Island, NY.
