There's Still Time to Make an Impact
25 March 2011

Thanks to all who came out last night to Ray's Boathouse for another fabulous Twestival Seattle! It was a gorgeous spring evening overlooking the still Puget Sound waters while Seattle's social media community come together to support a remarkable organization, FareStart.

Couldn't make it last night? No worries! You can still join the cause by donating online. Whatever amount you can give, we'll make sure 100% of it gets to FareStart, and we'll certainly give you some mad Twitter love as a token of our appreciation!

To make a difference in the lives of those in need, donate here

Can you help us reach our online goal of raising $2,000 for FareStart on FirstGiving? *Please note that this is IN ADDITION to the $4,780 we've already raised in ticket sales that go directly to FareStart

So far, we've raised $4,780 in ticket sales, $750 in raffle sales (some of which went to hard costs of the event), and $1,080 in the silent auction. All told, we've raised well over $6,000 for FareStart as a result of Twestival Seattle!

We'll post official photos of the night's highlights on our Facebook page soon, but in the meantime, here are a few winners, courtesy of @RL_Wood:

Anacortes Brewery
Wondering who you can thank for the frosty beverages you’ll be enjoying at Twestival Seattle on Thursday? That would be the Rockfish Grill and Anacortes Brewery (@Rockfish_Grill). Co-owner Rick Star has generously donated a keg of their Pilsner, which you can imbibe on Thursday, using your complimentary Twestival drink ticket.
The Anacortes Brewery has an extensive list of beers including, but not limited to, the Mai Oh Maibock named in honor of the late Mariners announcer Dave Niehaus. You can find Anacortes Brewery’s suds at a number of Seattle establishments, so keep your eye out or stop in for a bite (beer ice cream anyone?) and a pint next time you’re in Anacortes. Thank you Rockfish Grill and Anacortes Brewery for your refreshingly malty donation!
They’re no paparazzi, they’re pure artistes. We have two awesome volunteer photographers for Twestival, and we can't thank them enough for their generous gifts of time and talent!
They are Amanda Howse Butler and Danny Ngan. You can learn more about Amanda here: and Danny here:
