Coucilman Bill Peduto has gone GA/GI! Join Us This Saturday, March 27 for Pedutube!
We weren't shy when Councilman Bill Peduto asked us if there was "any way to assist" the Geek Art and Green Innovators Festival. As anyone can imagine, mounting a first-ever-festival is no joke, so we've been looking for pledges and partnering the way all business is currently done in America, making a connection with Bill Peduto--on Facebook! Councilman Bill tells us he's "backed more green legislation than any other member of city council." We're delighted that he's signed on to help raise funds for the city's first eco, art and technology festival--GA/GI!
Via "Pedutube," Bill has helped raise nearly $10,000 for local organizations and promoted their causes to new audiences in a fun and unique way. We discovered that two of our GA/GI partners--the Union Project and Friends of the Urban Forest--have been part of this wonderful program!
Here's how it works: Join us on Saturday, March 27th at Cappy's on Walnut Street in Shadyside at 10 pm with special guest DJ Muddy! Or if you can't make it, you can still be a part of PeduTube by using this form (click here) and requesting a YouTube video for a $5 donation... Or be a sponsor of GA/GI by pledging a nickel, dime or quarter for every dollar we raise. Thanks for your support....and we'll see you there for fun, laughs, friends and more GA/GI 411!
