Join us for the second annual Twitter Ball in support of lives affected by cancer! In addition to providing an insider's view of the CCTFA Foundation's largest fundraising event, Twitter Ball is a chance to win fabulous prizes and spread the word about two unique cancer support programs: Look Good Feel Better and Facing Cancer Together. There's no need to get dressed up for this ball (unless, of course you want to!), just grab some snacks and get ready for a fast-paced evening of fun, chatter and prizes!
A Twitter Ball (Twitter Party) is a fun, fast-paced forum discussing a specific topic. Questions will be asked via
tweet and party participants tweet back responses and comments by including the hashtag #MirrorBall2012.
It’s easy and it’s fun!
