Who belongs at HoHoTO? You do!

 When HoHoTO began in 2008, its first attendees were mainly from the technology and startup communities.

Being “the party that Twitter built,” it just made sense. After all, Twitter at that point was only a couple of years old, and early adopters to the microblogging site were mainly focused in those communities.

But as HoHoTO has grown over the years, so has its attendee base. Nowadays, you’re still likely to see the folks from the startup and technology worlds, but you’re also likely to see people from communications, the social media sphere, and people just out to do a good deed and raise some money for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

Since 2008, HoHoTO has raised more than $285,000 for Daily Bread. With your help, this year we can push that number to more than $300,000, and help some families in need this holiday season.

Not sure if you fit into the HoHoTO bucket? Don’t be shy, come out anyway! To ensure you have a great time, grab a bunch of your friends and buy a fistful of tickets. Coming with an entourage is definitely a way to make sure people you know are there.

But being that this is a social event, the other great way to scope out the guest list is to check out the #HoHoTO hashtag on Twitter and chat with other people who are coming (who you may not even know yet)!

We’ll see you on December 19!
