Miami and its inhabitants are known for many things, but one of the biggest is the amount of support Non-Profit Organizations and small businesses give to the local economy, as well as other non-profits and small businesses. The culmination of that spirit is what PhilanthroFest is all about. The FREE outdoor event is the brainchild of Life Is Art and Miami Crawls, which share years of event production, volunteer management, fundraising and marketing experience. By engaging community partners, PhilanthroFest will deliver a sustainable event that helps educate and support South Florida organizations and the community overall. The large-scale outdoor festival will take place in Mid-Town Miami from noon until 6 p.m. Saturday, April 14, 2012 at the Mid-Town Greenspace, 110 NE 36 Street, Miami FL 33137.
PhilanthroFest will be comprised of South Florida’s non-profit organizations and community leaders that are dedicated to promoting and increasing the growth and success of charitable groups in South Florida. The event, which will showcase a wide-variety of philanthropic organizations, community resources and cultural art exhibits is offered to local residents to gain insight and learn more about participation while raising awareness of services available to those in need.
PhilanthroFest was designed with the mission to sustain the South Florida community by encouraging community investment, enhance the outreach of philanthropic organizations enriching the community, enable opportunities for volunteer and donor base growth, provide social media education and training to enhance brand awareness, and celebrate art, music, dance and fashion. PhilanthroFest will be an annual community event where South Florida residents of all ages can learn about philanthropic organizations and community resources in a free, family friendly festival atmosphere while enjoying music, art, fashion, food and entertainment with the goal of increasing volunteerism, community engagement and donor investment.
All in all, coming to any other conclusion that PhilanthroFest, Life Is Art and Miami Crawls are anything BUT the perfect embodiment of what organizations should be, is crazy. Countless hours of planning, promotion and implementation on their behalf has been required in order to put PhilanthroFest together and they deserve the honor and respect of ALL of us that call ourselves Miamians. So come out this Saturday and support this wonderful cause as well as all the sponsors that have made this event possible!
