Archive for LA Twestival 2009 Charity Event
What a great event to be able to attend! This Social Media event is happening all over the world to help benefit various charities. Here in LA, the charities were LA Food Bank and Chrysalis.
LA Food Bank’s mission is to mobilize resources to fight hunger in our LA Community. Each dollar received by the food bank can actually provide four complete meals to those in need.
Chrysalis is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping economically disadvantaged and homeless individuals become self-sufficient through employment opportunities. It currently helps more than 2,000 individuals a year change their lives through jobs.
It was neat to watch our tweets stream live on the big screen TV’s. Although we were late for the comedians (we heard a few of them bombed), we drooled over the woman who was next to us who won the 5 day vacation to Hawaii!
The guy on our left won Fatburger checks and I was very cool with that. I don’t need any extra pounds to add to my physique. Now I think hubbie was drooling over those checks.
We heard various groups such as Dr. Hollywood with “We Run LA”. Everyone rushed to the dance floor for that one. It was funny watching so many techies dance the night away. I didn’t want to show them my skills. Seriously I’ve won a few dance contests in my day. Watch out for me one day in “So You Think You Can Dance!”
We love to people watch and we saw Ben Parr from Mashable but by the time I went over to meet him, I couldn’t find him. We’ll see if I get another chance next week at the upcoming LA Twitter Conference.
I hope to meet Mari Smith, Guy Kawasaki and Tony Hawk and so many others. Stay tuned for another video montage of next week’s event. I’m sure that the video will be much longer since the Twitter Conference lasts two days. Let the countdown begin…8 days and counting…
