This next City Spotlight will be for Seattle. This is Seattle’s second year hosting a 4sqDay event. With 5 city leaders last year, the team dropped a few people and then grew to 7. These individuals are hard working and will do anything make this Monday, a great event.

Robert Wong, one of the leaders for the event says:

We set the bar pretty high last year in Seattle, we got a lot of positive feedback and complements on the job we did. We are hoping to do the same this year.

Last year, Seattle had around 100 attendees, but this year, having the party on a Monday isn’t stopping them. They feel that they could get that number and even more with all the buzz going around. Wong mentions that the sponsors are quickly jumping at the chance to be apart of the big deal. However, one issue Seattle is having, is the t-shirts. Finding a sponsor for those proved tough, but WAPPOW Inc is stepping up and donating the shirts!

Wong again brags about last year:
One of the highlights last year was our raffle. We had awesome prizes from local businesses along with the Seattle Sounders. We are happy to say that the Sounders are again providing tickets to one of their games, we’ve also got Uber Seattle helping out with discounted rides to and from our event and many other local businesses contributing gift certificates and other prizes.
This years list of sponsors keeps growing:
  • Seattle Sounders
  • Uber Seattle
  • Bill the Butcher
  • Wappow
  • Belltown Pub
  • Habitude
  • other local business
Belltown Pub will be hosting the party this year. They will have happy hour all day for those who check in. In addition, their awesome bartenders are creating a special 4sqDay drink just for our event. The Seattle team will be passing out t-shirts to the first 50 check ins. And Sonar is even helping out. They have a few ideas for some foursquare games that they are going to try out.
Good luck Seattle!
