Everybody that attended the Lafayette Twestival 2011 last Thursday at The Muse agreed the event was a great success. We thank everybody that has involved in helping an amazing event and a great local cause.
If you are using Twitter from Lafayette, Indiana, then you are already a fan of Lafayette Twestival!
Even if you don't use Twitter or Facebook, come tonight at The Muse at 7 PM to network with other local people, while supporting a great local non-profit - City Foods.
A "Twestival" is a "Twitter Festival" that brings people together for an evening of entertainment, charity and humanity. There are many ways we can support the local community and the Lafayette Twestival is one of them.
We are excited to see such a great interest from the local people for this 4th edition of the local Twestival.
We are confident that it will be a great success, and we can't wait to share with you great photos and news about the amazing things City Foods will do with the funds, in collaboration with the North 10th Street Co-op Garden project.
We can do amazing things in Greater Lafayette - all we need to do is to communicate.
Buy tickets at the door, buy them online, or donate as a local small business - any way you choose to support this great Twitter Festival is greatly appreciated, we thank you for your efforts!
