Congratulations Ottawa Twestival 2011!

We just wanted to send a quick shout out to the organizers of Ottawa Twestival 2011, who together with all of the attendees, raised $12,321 for the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health.

There were a ton of Local Tourists that showed up in support of the event, including Jessey and Amy, Hilary Duff, Jane Porter, Lara Wellman, Karen, and Mel Gallant (who we heard was there but never tracked her down because the place was so wonderfully jam packed). We also all got a chance to sample delicious cupcakes from Little Cakes.

Sure, Ottawa Twestival 2011 was a great space to meet some of Ottawa’s top tweeps, but most importantly, the funds went to a very important local cause.

A huge congratulations (and thank you) to the event organizers for surpassing their goal, and for using their love of Twitter and digital communications to make a difference in our community.

Well done!
