The first Social Media for Social Change event is happening this Friday. I wanted to take a moment to give you more information on what to expect.

SM4SC starts at 6:30. There will be a cocktail reception until 8:00, at which point we’ll hear from Empressr, our Presenting Sponsor. Then I’ll say a few words, followed by a representative from Jane Doe Inc, the charitable organization for which we’re raising funds. After that, we’ll begin our raffle drawings.

After SM4SC, we’re headed out for TechKaraoke. Details on that to follow.

Raffle Items:
Matt Knell already did a great writeup on the SM4SC blog about the raffle items that are up for grabs. Be sure to read up on the details of the prizes, as well as the price of the raffles. Here’s what’s up for grabs:

Grand Prize - A laptop with a value up to $1500, donated by Dell Small Business!

First Prize - 2 roundtrip flights on a major airline that flies out of Boston

Second Prize - Digital Visibility Audit & Action Plan™, donated by David Petherick, Digital Biographer

Third prize - A selection of bags, donated by Timbuk2

Other prizes

  • Wine and swag from Gary Vaynerchuk and Winelibrary.tv (you obviously must be over 21 years of age to win this one!)

  • A prize pack from the MTV Shop, featuring some DVDs, toys and other goodies

  • A prize pack from Hertz, with some coupons and some other swag

Dress Code:
There have been a lot of questions lately about how people should dress. Previously, I said “semi-formal” was the way to go. That’s a very broad term, so we ask you to ask yourself the question:

Scott Monty

Basically, this means you don’t need a tux, but dress nicer than you do for work. Unless you’re an investment banker, then come in your work clothes.

Ladies, you were born with an innate sense of style that us men will never know. Meg Fowler recommends that you think on these three names:

  • Audrey Hepburn

  • Sophia Loren

  • You, on your best day ever

Thanks, I look forward to seeing you all on Friday!
