Twestival Seattle --- Look what YOU did

image Because of YOU --- Twestival Seattle was the 3rd highest in raising funds for Concern Worldwide. Seattle gave more than LA and NYC. Proof that The Seattle Social Media Community ROCKS!

I’d like to extend a big THANK YOU to our sponsors. There were many more than those listed below. For a complete listing see Thank You to Our Sponsors. I’d like to highlight these sponsors because they stepped up and helped keep Twestival Seattle flowing (literally & figuratively).


Fremont Brewing
A HUGE Thank You to Matt and Sara of Fremont Brewing--- I cannot say enough nice things about them. Sara jumped right in and said YES to sponsoring Twestival.


Hansen’s Natural
Vanessa was giving away a wide selection of Hansen’s sodas and taking pics for the Hansen’s facebook site. She also showed up in the Hansen’s VW Thing (see the fb site)


Magnificent Wine
Thanks to Elizabeth for bringing some of their House Wine.

Also, thanks to Maureen for coordinating the wineries


William Church Winery
Leslie brought a fantastic 2007 Sur La Mer Bordeaux Blend for everyone to get a Taste of Washington

Special Thanks & Recognition

image This event was made possible with the help and hard work of a lot of people. However, it would not have been possible without the guidance of our fearless leader --- Shauna Causey --- she and the rest of the team deserve a big round of applause.

Thank you again to all of our sponsors and especially to everyone who attended and gave so generously.

We hope to see you at the next Twestival Seattle. Plans are already under way for the next event in October 2010. If you or your company have an interest in sponsoring or know someone who is please let me know. My contact information is below.

Our goal for the next Twestival is to raise the most funds and do the most good for our community. I have no doubts that we can do this. Because the Seattle Social Media Community ROCKS!
