Looking for venue to host KCTwestival
4 March 2011
Hello everyone. The biggest need we have right now is to find a venue that can hold up to 100-150 people for the KCTwestival. We have been trying to reach out to The Brooksider Bar and Grill to see if they would like to host the event like they did back in September 2009, but so far, no luck. If you know of any potential venues willing to donate space to host this event, please let us know either by leaving a comment down below or tagging a tweet with #kctwestival.
Thanks for your help!

Welcome to Kansas City Twestival 2011
3 March 2011
Hello and welcome to the Kansas City Twestival blog! We are proud to announce that on March 24th Kansas City will host its own Twestival Local event.
Twestival® (or Twitter Festival) uses social media for social good by connecting communities off-line on a single day to highlight a great cause and have a fun event. Twestival is the largest global grass roots social media fundraising initiative to date. Since 2009, volunteers have raised close to $1.2 million for 137 non-profits. All local events are organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of all ticket sales and donations go direct to projects.
Twestival was born out of the idea that if cities were able to collaborate on an international scale, but work from a local level, it could have a spectacular impact. Over 200 international cities from Buenos Aires to Bangalore, Seattle to Seoul and Hong Kong to Honolulu have participated in Twestival.
Twestival Local 2011 is a great opportunity to bring the community together. The day is about more than fundraising, but all money raised will go directly to a local charity, that means 100% of the funds will be spent in Kansas City. We are still in the process of approving our own charity, so watch out on Twitter for announcements.
We are currently working on confirming a venue. If you know of a venue interested in hosting this event, please let us know in the comments. Tickets will go on sale soon so remember to check back here or follow us on Twitter, details below. We will announce details of the evening's activities over the coming weeks, but if you have suggestions or would like to get involved, our contact details are below. In fact, please get in touch if you can help or advise in any way!
For updates or to get involved, please follow us on Twitter (where else?!) @KCTwestival, and make a note of the date in your diary - 24th March 2011.
