The national campaign #GivingTuesday™ began its life as a simple idea: We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals....Wouldn't it be great to have a day for giving back? This Tuesday, our community will have two opportunities to give back and support arts and culture non-profits in our community.
Today, from 8am to noon KXCI conducted a special 4-hour membership drive with an emphasis on new and gift memberships. Thanks for helping us raise more than $1200 for KXCI during this first ever #GivingTuesday™.
Then, from 3pm to 7pm, KXCI and the Fox Tucson Theatre will support many downtown-based arts and cultural organizations with an event best described as a "downtown happy hour for the arts."
We'll have a live remote with Cathy Rivers and Al Perry... free food... a cash bar... raffles and prizes. And a chance to meet and support a number of the arts and cultural groups that make Tucson a great place to call home.
Our list of participants continues to grow. You can come celebrate and support the arts with the Fox, KXCI, Arizona Theatre Company, the Rialto Theatre, Tucson Symphony Orchestra, 2nd Saturdays Downtown, TKMA/Tucson Folk Festival, and The Screening Room/Arizona International Film Festival, with more yet to be announced.
Stay tuned to KXCI 91.3FM for complete details on these #GivingTuesday events.
