KC Twestival fund-raiser for Wayside Waifs tonight at the Brooksider

Tonight at the Brooksider is the second Twestival, a charitable event being pushed by the Kansas City Social Media Club and a few other social media users to raise money for Wayside Waifs.

Here’s the deal: A $15 donation gets you in the Brooksider (6330 Brookside Plaza) and you can stuff your face with pizza from Pizza 51 (and food from Sysco and the Brooksider), drink all the beer from Boulevard and Barnyard Brewery (or Vitamin Water for the non-drinkers) you want and check out Reach and The Threes from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. And your $15 goes to Wayside Waifs. All of it?

“Every penny is going to go to Wayside Waifs,” says Bonnie Goldberg, who’s helping with the Twestival. “It really is incredible. Everyone is stepping up.”

There’s no overhead because everything is being donated, Goldberg says. Everyone involved deserves a big kudos to everyone involved.

Wayside Waifs

will take the money and follow the immortal words of Bob Barker and

spay and neuter cats and dogs.

If you just want to give to Wayside Waifs, there’s an online donation site also set up (but then you won’t get the pizza, beer and music). Try to say no after watching¬† this video of caged, sad-faced puppies.
