For those of you haven’t heard yet, there’s a hockey Tweetup on Oct. 25th during the Canucks game. But it’s not your average Canucks Tweetup. Although similar to Tweetups held in the past, this one is special because all proceeds gathered are going to Right to Play Canada, an organization designed to help unfortunate children play sports across Canada.
Katie Maximick and Justine Galo came up with the idea to host this event to combine the power of social media with charity. Knowing how many Canucks fans (and other fans) are on Twitter, and how much these guys have loved Tweetups in the past, Maximick and Galo were hoping to capture this passion and transform it into a fun way of helping children in need.
What you need to know:
Don’t forget to come early to save yourself a seat. Half of the bar is reserved for the event, but knowing how popular Tweetups get, it could fill fast! Also, The Charles Bar has really great food and cheap drink specials during the week. Bonus, right?
Can’t make it or live out of town? You can still donate to the event here:
Hope to see you all there! After all, who doesn’t like hockey, good food, better people and a great cause?
