Definitely say something along "Debian (GNU/Linux) install
party/tutorial/presentation for GNU/Linux newbies". Also what Daniel
said, "some thing about learning, meeting
people, workshops, etc" (and by learning i mean learning about debian
and how one could get involved).
That will attract a lot of younger people who are interested but not
yet involved in Free Software (GNU/Linux => Debian).
