Seastar Restaurant will host a 2-hour Twitter charity event in partnership with Lynn Haigh, founder of PawPawty, an organization that helps animals across the world through Twitter fundraisers. The event will not only take place physically at Seastar’s Bellevue location, but also virtually via Twitter. The goal of this real/virtual event is to raise $1,000.00 to benefit Homeward Pet, a no-kill rescue, shelter and adoption center which servers the greater Seattle area.

Homeward Pet Adoption Center, one of the largest no-kill shelters in the State of Washington, will benefit from an unprecedented charity fundraising event at Seastar Restaurant in Bellevue, WA on Saturday, September 25, 2010 from 4 pm to 6 pm, PDT. “Paw Love in Seattle” will physically take place at Seastar Restaurant, and virtually everywhere else in the world via Twitter. The goal of this event is to raise $1,000.00 to benefit Homeward Pet.

Funds will be raised in several ways: The host, Seastar Restaurant, will donate $2.00 to Homeward Pet for every mojito or cosmopolitan drink bought during the event. Both physical and virtual attendees will have the opportunity to make monetary donations onsite or online. Corporate sponsors will donate funds for this charity event and/or door prizes for the attendees.
