This Thursday, March 25
thousands of people in cities around the globe will gather
face-to-face for the largest social media planned non-profit
event in the U.S. -- Twestival!
All Twestival gatherings
are volunteer-driven, and 100 percent of the event proceeds go
directly to Concern Worldwide, an inspiring international
humanitarian organization that works to make education more
accessible for some of the world’s poorest children. For
more information on the history and impact of Twestival,
We're lucky enough to have Emerald City Trapeze in our
'hood, and they've generously offered their space to be the
official venue of Twestival! And, thanks to Spring Creek Group
for sponsoring the "air time," a few lucky attendees
will get the opportunity to 'fly high' learning trapeze basics.
There are 60 flying spots available and if you're interested,
please email ShaunaCausey@gmail.com. If you're one of the first
50 to respond, you'll get a chance to take one or two swings,
under the guidance of the talented Emerald City Trapeze
instructors,of course. If you're not interested in trying it out
for yourself, don't worry, there will be a professional flying
show later in the evening so we can watch the best in the
Northwest perform. Most creative Twestival venue ever? We think
so! Follow @TwestivalSea for more unfolding updates.
