Tweet To Remember: Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro one tweet a time

Local entrepreneur Michael-James Pennie has tackled challenges and adventures before. Co-founder of !escunid Online Business Development with Gwyn T. Pritchett and offering online services since 2003, Pennie is setting out on an adventure to climb Mount Kilimanjaro next month in an effort to raise awareness and funds for the BC Alzheimer Society. As he climbs the mountain, Pennie will broadcast his progress through his Twitter account (@mjpennie).

Pennie, whose father was recently diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer, is organizing a fundraiser on Monday August 24th from 6:00 to 10:00pm. The wine tasting and silent auction will be hosted by The Wine Room on Burrard and West Pender. Ticket prices are $25 online in advance and $30 at the door. Tickets include a Best of B.C red or white wine flight and can be purchased through EventBrite.

Pennie’s blitz fundraising campaign will also see the local entrepreneur climb the Grouse Grind carrying the $10,000 raised in loonies – approximately 154 pounds in change. More information on the Tweet to Remember campaign here.
