Looking for a fun way to start your holiday shopping while supporting local non-profit organizations? Join Volunteers On Call and Greenwich Hospital on Greenwich Avenue on December 2nd, 2014 for Greenwich Gives, a community fundraising event in recognition of Giving Tuesday.
Giving Tuesday is a global movement dedicated to a day of giving back and celebrating generosity. On the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, communities are encouraged to come together to kick off the giving season by engaging in philanthropic endeavors and local development.
The office of the First Selectman of Greenwich has issued a proclamation declaring December 2nd, 2014 as Giving Tuesday in Greenwich. In recognition of this celebration of giving, local non-profits Greenwich Hospital and Volunteers On Call (VOC) are co-hosting a fundraising event called “Greenwich Gives” on Greenwich Avenue on December 2nd.
Throughout the day, participating stores and restaurants on Greenwich Avenue and surrounding streets will offer perks to customers and donate a percentage of proceeds throughout the day to Greenwich Hospital and VOC. See a complete list of participating venues and event details here: http://volunteersoncall.org/greenwich-gives-participating-venues/
There will also be a reception at Richards (359 Greenwich Avenue) from 4-6pm where shoppers can sip champagne and purchase raffle tickets to win amazing items from stores on the Avenue.
