We are so excited, honored, and HYPED to announce that our SECOND CHARITY “DATE” AUCTION will be on OCTOBER 10, 2013 at Johnny Brenda’s!
The theme? MAKERS.
Philly Give & Get: MAKER Edition will highlight Philadelphia’s exemplary creative economy. We’re calling on all Makers, Do-ers, Creators, Inspire-ers, and Instigators to come celebrate the innovation, creativity, and JFDI-good-nature of Philadelphia.
Once again, all proceeds will go to a local charity that supports Philly youth. Once again, we’re going to bring you an amazing roster of local, professional Experts and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
For this second auction, we are partnering with Generocity.org as our fiscal sponsor and Official Media Partner.
Why partner? Simply put, we want to streamline everything in order to keep overhead low. Because we’re still a relatively new organization, we’re still working on our processes and want to make participating in our events as easy as possible for our Charity Recipient, Sponsors, and Attendees.
Generocity will be providing fiscal sponsorship and will be collecting contributions and donations through their re-granting system.
Plus, on the night of the Auction, they’ll be hosting an online fundraising component on their website, so that those who can’t be there physically can still contribute to the Charity Recipient’s amazing cause.
“Partnering with Philly Give & Get was a no-brainer for us,” said Generocity.org Executive Director, Dave Raible. “They are engaging local experts and leveraging the community’s needs to benefit social good organizations and we have the tools to make it work.”
