Tweeting for a good cause


“Tweet. Meet. Give.”

That’s the tagline for Twestival, a charity event organized by the Twitter community taking place in more than 175 cities around the globe today. The goal is to raise at least $1 million for charity: water, a non-profit organization working to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

The Las Vegas event kicks off at 7 p.m. at the Beatles Revolution Lounge inside the Mirage resort on the Las Vegas Strip. Pre-registration for the event has closed, but tickets can be purchased at the door by cash only. All proceeds benefit charity: water, and in addition to the cool people, sexy atmosphere and free “Tweetinis” going around, there are some cool raffle prizes if you cough up a little more than the $20 standard donation, including bottles and tables at Light Group nightclubs, personalized, limited-edition cupcakes from Retro Bakery and gift cards from Dunkin’ Donuts.

It’s all for a great cause, it’ll be interesting to meet the faces behind those mysterious tweets, and awesome people such as KLAS-TV’s Dave Courvoisier, CineVegas’ Roger Erik Tinch and, of course, me, will be there.

    Hey Pj,

    The story of many hands make big things happen. This year especially teamwork is the only way to get great things accomplished. We have been planning for this over a year ago.

    I am going through all the blogs on the Beer and Blog Las Vegas site to show appreciation to everyone. I always hear I don’t have time from people. Well i actually don’t so I just stop and make time for things that are important.

    You have a great site here
    Thanks for having me

    Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comments.

    I’m glad to be just one of those “many hands.”
