Larger Crowd. More Non-Profits. More Engagement. More Fun.
Detroit, Mich., January 22, 2016 – At a private Press Event last evening, GiveYoung.org announced its nonprofit partners for Engage Detroit 2016. The 2016 event brand was introduced to the public in front of 50+ loyal partners and press. The event officially launched the Engage event season and the start of ticket sales.
GiveYoung.org will host its annual awareness event on April 8th at the historic Westin Book Cadillac in downtown Detroit. Eight local nonprofits — Arts & Scraps, Beyond Basics, Camp Casey, Downtown Youth Boxing Gym, Kadima, Corrections2Community, YMCA of Detroit Swim Program and Live the Music Foundation — will be featured during the evening.
Each season, GiveYoung.org’s nonprofit team joins together to provide charitable information to the younger generation. These nonprofit partners are featured at the Engage event and given the opportunity to interact with hundreds of new faces through engaging activities. Help Arts & Scraps make art out of trash. Discover how it feels to be part of a rock band with Live the Music Foundation. Learn how to box in a cocktail dress with Downtown Youth Boxing Gym. Make book covers and bookmarks with Beyond Basics. And there will be many more engaging activities thanks to this year’s featured nonprofits.
“We do what other nonprofits can’t,” says Rick Van House, co-founder and chairman of GiveYoung.org. “Nonprofits aren’t usually able to host extravagant events to teach the next generation of philanthropists … but GiveYoung.org can. And we can do it for them at no cost.”
This 400-person event will give the next generation a chance to interact with peers and engage with nonprofits in a revolutionary way. The goal is to encourage philanthropic giving through donations of money, time or both.
General admission tickets for the event are available for $40 and VIP tickets can be purchased for $75 at GiveYoung.org/Engage. All ticket sale profits and money raised will go to GiveYoung.org to help host next year’s event and continue the work of educating the next generation of philanthropists.
