More than 200 cities worldwide are participating, and live Twitter feeds from other events will be displayed throughout the event. There will be a silent auction with items ranging from pro athletes signed shoes to original art, a live band, a short presentation by the founder of Shoes for Connor, and a short film that shows how the shoes will help needy kids plus the usual eating, drinking and socializing that goes on at any good tweetup.
The Twestival starts tonight at 5 p.m. at Cool River Cafe, 8000 East Belleview Avenue in Greenwood Village. Tickets are $20, or $10 with a pair of shoes, or $1 with ten pairs (practical shoes only, and please tie or rubber-band them together). All money raised goes directly to charity.
