Big Day of Giving at the Dock Set for May 3rd
As the Big Day of Giving – affectionately known as Big Dog — gears up for its fifth year, three local non-profits have teamed up to create a community event with a focus on fun and philanthropy. Davis Media Access, Davis Music Festival and Davis Phoenix Coalition are the combined force behind “Big Day at the Dock” to be held Thursday, May 3, 2018, from 6-10 p.m. at the Sudwerk Brewing Co. Dock Store, 2001 Second Street in Davis.
Big Day of Giving is a 24 hour giving extravaganza coordinated nationwide but made real at the local level. Donations pour in from across the community online and in person amidst good times, good tunes, and good food.
Big Day at the Dock will feature live music by local bands, information tables, giving stations for a wide variety of non-profits, a BBQ by Davis Firefighters, a photo booth, and of course the beer for which Sudwerk is famous. The event is an all-ages venue.
“Non-profits do transformative work across diverse interest areas. Big missions and tight budgets are the norm, and for the Big Day of Giving. I didn’t want us to be siloed in our efforts,” said Autumn Labbe-Renault, executive director of Davis Media Access.
Along with Kyle Monhollen and Gloria Partida of Davis Phoenix Coalition, Labbe-Renault is organizing the event that now includes nearly a dozen local non-profits: any and all welcome your contributions!
STAY TUNED TO @cooldaviscity Facebook and Twitter
DONATION LINKS WILL BE SHARED JUST BEFORE AND DURING THE EVENT
Please come hungry and thirsty and prepared to learn about and support non-profits in our community.
Help make the Big Day of Giving 2018 one marked by generosity and celebration.
