Tweet. Meet. Give! Twestival L.A. to Benefit Local Youth Mentoring Program
Have some fun and do some good with your Thursday night! It's Twestival time and that means Tweetups and gatherings are taking place in cities around the world on one night. This year, each local Twestival benefits a local organization. Twestival Los Angeles is raising money for Los Angeles Team Mentoring, which uses a team-based approach to mentoring to engage and empower middle school students growing up in challenging urban environments.
To date, LATM has impacted more than 19,000 young lives and local Twestival organizers Philanthro are looking to drive a groundswell of awareness (and funds) into the program by engaging L.A.'s social mediaites and do-gooders.
What's in it for you? For your advance $10 donation you'll have a chance to win a free month of fitness boot camp training and everyone at the event (admission is a $15 donation at the door) will have the opportunity to win a pair of round-trip tickets on JetBlue.
Come downtown to the Association from 6 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (Thurs March 24) for drinks and food specials as well as a visit from the Komodo Food Truck. If you can't make it, you can still help spread the word on Twitter.
