Detroit – As the “season of giving” approaches, dozens of nonprofit organizations in Southeast Michigan, such as the Ruth Ellis Center, will have the opportunity to raise awareness and fundraise through the second annual Give Detroit Challenge.
At the same time, they will compete for $50,000 in cash prizes made possible by generous Challenge supporters Kroger and GiveYoung.org.
The team that raises the most money during the Challenge wins $20,000 for their charity. Second, third, fourth and fifth place winners will earn some cash for their organizations, too.
There will be bonus challenges each week for the charities to win thousands of dollars for their cause. The best part of the Challenge is that even if an organization doesn’t win any of the grand prize money, they are permitted to keep the funds raised. The Challenge, presented by Hour Detroit, ends Nov. 10. Visit the Give Detroit Challenge website http://www.crowdrise.com/givedetroitchallenge to find your favorite charity, donate and monitor the team leaderboard.
