#OCtweetup #SaveOurBeach w/ @BigTrain is 2 days away!

Posted by on March 7, 2011

The #OCtweetup #SaveOurBeach with Big Train is just 2 days away. We have received positive feedback about this event and I’m getting so excited! All proceeds will be donated to SaveOurBeach.org to help keep our local beaches clean. Thanks to Jim at Big Train a press release went out last week. Here’s the link to the one on Yahoo! News: http://news.yahoo.com/s/prweb/20110303/bs_prweb/prweb8170003_7 and Kim Masoner, founder of Save Our Beach as been working hard promoting the event and collecting wonderful prizes for the raffle.

By the way, you do not have to be on Twitter to attend this event. It’s a fun networking event for anyone interested in social media, meeting new people and doing something to benefit our environment too.

Speaking opportunity: I have a feeling this is going to be the quickest 2 hour Tweetup ever. We’ll be having so much fun we’ll be saying, “Where did the time go?” I will do a quick intro at the beginning of the event and will offer up the microphone to anyone who would like to do a brief intro and shout-out their purpose in life and Twitter handle. Don’t be shy!
