United Way’s Pop Up Giving is back!
YOU pick the nonprofit with the winning pitch to get the donation pot.
Fast. Fun. Instant impact.
United Way of Southwest Michigan invites the public to attend its THIRD “Pop Up Giving” event on Thursday, May 9 from 5-7 p.m. at Lehman's Orchard Brewery & Farmhouse in Buchanan. This event gives the community the chance to decide where funds go.
Three local HEALTH nonprofits have three minutes to pitch a project that will impact the community. The audience has five minutes to complete their ballots to determine the winner. Proceeds from ticket sales are combined to create a “donation pot.” Second and third place finishers each receive consolation cash prizes of $250, while the organization with the most votes WINS THE REST!
This event’s sponsor, United Federal Credit Union, has already kicked in $1,000 to get the pot started!
Individual tickets are $20 and include one free drink and light appetizers provided by Lehman’s. Doors open at 5 p.m. Presentations begin at 6 p.m.
THANK YOU to all who attended United Way of Southwest Michigan’s “Pop Up Giving” at Silver Harbor Brewing Company on Thursday, January 24.
Congratulations to Kinexus for winning our 2nd event! We also congratulate Junior Achievement and Gateway Services for their incredible pitches! Kinexus walked away with $2,400 while Junior Achievement and Gateway took home $250 each.
