Vancouver Twestival Venue and Tickets

February 4th, 2009 @ 9:29am (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

A few weeks ago I hopped on board the Twestival organization team and decided to figure out Vancouver’s event. Twestival is a high profile event for Charity:Water that will be taking place in over 180 cities o February 12, 2009. Our plan is to get together after work for food, drinks, mingling, raffle prizes, fundraising, and of course, tweeting and linking up with other cities.

We announced this morning that the venue will be the Opus in Yaletown. They have set aside a space for Twestival and can accommodate all of the above. They are also going to be giving 6% of all drink sales that night to Charity:Water.

Big thanks go to the Opus for partnering with us on this as well as our top tier sponsor 6S Marketing. If you would like to get involved by being a volunteer (like the great crew that’s helped so far) or sponsor, please feel free to contact me.

Tickets are going on sale this morning at 9:30am PT for $10 and can only be purchased through the Amiando system, as setup by the global network of Twestival sites.
