THANK YOU to all who attended United Way of Southwest Michigan’s “Pop Up Giving” at Silver Harbor Brewing Company’s Beer Garden this past Thursday, January 24. It was a smash success.
Congratulations to Kinexus for winning our 2nd event! We also congratulate Junior Achievement and Gateway Services for their incredible pitches! Kinexus walked away with $2400 while Junior Achievement and Gateway took home $250 each.
What is “Pop Up Giving”?
Three local nonprofits make their pitches to an audience of up to 100 people on the impact the money could have on their program or project.
Attendees fill out a ballot and vote on their favorite pitch.
Tickets are $20 and include one free drink, free appetizers and your chance to VOTE!
100% of the ticket sales will be donated to the winning nonprofit via a check presentation that evening!
Consolation cash prizes will be distributed as well.
