Join Us For Twestival Seattle, Our Official SMC Seattle Event This Month!
What do you wish for when you close your eyes? A million bucks? The ability to fly? A chance to bring quality education to some of the world’s poorest children? A chance to attend the largest social media event on the planet?
Good luck on the million bucks part, but guess what: Twestival Seattle has the rest covered!
On Thursday, March 25th thousands of people in cities around the globe will gather face-to-face to use social media for social good at Twestival! All Twestival gatherings are volunteer-driven, and 100 percent of the event proceeds go directly to Concern Worldwide, an inspiring international humanitarian organization that works to make education more accessible for some of the world’s poorest children. For more information on the history and impact of Twestival, visit: http://twestival.com/
So, what about the flying part? We’re lucky enough to have Emerald City Trapeze in our ‘hood, and they’ve generously offered their space to be the official venue of Twestival! And, thanks to Spring Creek Group for sponsoring the “air time,” a few lucky attendees will get the opportunity to ‘fly high’ learning trapeze basics. There are 60 flying spots available and if you’re interested, please email ShaunaCausey-at-gmail-dot-com. If you’re one of the first 50 to respond, you’ll get a chance to take one or two swings, under the guidance of the talented Emerald City Trapeze instructors,of course. If you’re not interested in trying it out for yourself, don’t worry, there will be a professional flying show later in the evening so we can watch the best in the Northwest perform. Most creative Twestival venue ever? We think so! Follow @TwestivalSea for more unfolding updates.

A huge thanks to Swedish Medical Center (@Swedish) for being the PLATINUM Sponsor! Did you know Swedish is turning 100 this year? The original Swedish Hospital opened as a nonprofit in 1910 by Swedish immigrant and surgeon Dr. Nils Johanson. Today, Swedish is Greater Seattle’s largest nonprofit health system. They’re working to improve the health of the community in many ways, including using social media to raise awareness about health issues. Swedish Medical Center not only shares the same acronym as Social Media Club Seattle (we both go by SMC), they are also a big supporter of SMC Seattle and Twestival Seattle.
