March 2013 #DenverTweetup – DaVita Teams up with #DenverTweetup to Make Denver #KidneyAware
Tuesday, March 26, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (MDT)
Join #DenverTweetup and @DaVita for real beer, real food and virtual people in support of kidney disease awareness. Enjoy making new Twitter connections, drink free craft beer and wine, all while taking in some of the best views of Denver and the mountains from DaVita’s top floor terrace.
While there, you’ll have the opportunity to have your photo displayed on possibly the largest Instagram photo wall you’ve ever seen. We’ll also have great prizes to give away and a local brewer pouring beer. You don’t want to miss this one.

What's to know? Since 2008 we've been connecting Denver tweeple to come together to drink, be merry, and raise money for great causes. Follow @DenverTweetup or the hashtag #DenverTweetup on Twitter for updates. It's a no-spam zone, just friendly conversation to learn who really is behind your favorite Twitter handles.
Speaking of great causes...
About Kidney Disease
One in ten U.S. adults over the age of 20 has chronic kidney disease, but most don’t know it because the disease typically shows no symptoms. Kidney disease is the 8th leading cause of death in the United States and develops when kidneys lose their ability to remove waste and maintain fluid and chemical balances in the body. Groups who are at high-risk of developing the disease include those with diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease as well as minorities and those with family history of kidney disease.
Know your risk, get tested, be #kidneyaware.
