The goal is to “ignite Bend” as people share the ideas of which they are very passionate. The event is called, Ignite Bend, and it's tonight at the Tower Theatre: “Included this time there is somebody talking about understanding your credit, cyclo-cross, ultimate Frisbee, how to brew beer, the art of facing your greatest fear, how to turn your kid into a rock star.” Cassondra Schndler of Ignite Bend says it's free to attend, and the 400 free tickets have already been spoken for, but there will be a standby line in case some ticket holders don't show up. The event will also be webcast. Nine presenters each have five minutes with 20 power point slides to pitch their passion. It’s tonight at 7 at theTower.
