This week marks two whole years of weekly pulse emails, spotlights of local businesses, contests and features, Fraser Valley events and discovering this awesome region of BC. I sort of feel like I’ve been doing this forever, but on the other hand I hardly remember not writing FVP!
I’ll spare you lots of lovey dovey mushy sentiments, but please accept my sincere gratitude to you all for reading FVP and for your continued support. Myself and the FVP gals love what we do and are so thankful for being able to showcase how amazing our Fraser Valley is and for the ongoing opportunity to meet so many of you! As always, we love to hear from you and continue to welcome your feedback and comments on what we’re doing over here
As you have all heard, we are celebrating this milestone by joining forces with Teri Conrad of Red Barn Group and Caree Bray of Dominion Lending to bring Twestival to the Fraser Valley. This is the first year for a Fraser Valley Twestival - in the past it has been held in Vancouver and Victoria – this year we are joining in, as is Whistler and Kelowna. Twestival is the world’s largest grassroots social media fundraising initiative to date. There are over 200 countries that will participate in Twestival celebrations on March 24, 2011.
We hope to see you on March 24th from 6PM – 10PM at the Coast Hotel in Langley. 100% of the funds raised from ticket sales, raffle prizes, silent auction and other initiatives at the event will be donated to Canuck Place Abbotsford. While we all hope we never have to use this new facility, having this special resource in our community will be a huge blessing. Get your tickets here and join in this super fun fundraiser for this amazing cause!
One of the best things about Twestival’s format is that it’s 100% sponsored. All local events are organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of ticket sales and donations go directly to the featured projects. We have some amazing sponsors who have joined us in putting this event together – see what they have to say about Twestival Fraser Valley.
Happy 2 years, lovely readers! Here’s to many more
