I am proud to announce that I will be a sponsor of the upcoming Twestival 207.
Twestivals are events where Twitter communities come together to raise money for a local organization or charity. Proceeds of Twestival 207 benefit the Maine Aids Alliance.
I’m dedicating this sponsorship to my dear family friend Bill Parker. He was a talented and prominent musician who lived in New York City and lost his battle to Aids in 1992. He was known for his contribution to the Aids Quilt and Aids Quilt Songbook. He grew up beside my mother in our small town in Pennsylvania. Even though I was in late highschool. I remember him coming to visit in 1991 and explaining to my mother “I may not see you again Nancy… because I am sick.”
With issues like healthcare, education and Swine flu in the forefront, it is important that we not forget other issues such as Aids awareness. Hope to see you all this Sunday!
Twestival 207 will be held at Portland’s Space Gallery Sunday, September 13th from 5-8 pm. Admission is $10 and includes food and drinks. You may learn more about Twestival 07 at http://portlandme.twestival.com/
