Alive After Five Announces Community Nonprofits to Benefit from "Tips for Charity"
April 25, 2019

Alive After Five could not be successful without a great group of volunteers, and again in 2019, those volunteers will help raise money for three very worthwhile community nonprofits.

The Tips for Charity program offers nonprofits the opportunity to supply volunteers to assist with beverage service at Alive After Five, and in return, all tips from beverage purchases go to support the nonprofit.

For the 2019 season of Alive After Five, partner nonprofits include:
June: Catch - Charitable Assistance to the Community’s Homeless

• July: Fundsy, on behalf of The Peregrine Fund

• August: Boise Fire Local 149 Burnout Fund

In 2018, after 13 weeks of free summer concerts on The Grove Plaza, Alive After Five concert goers gave back more than $18,000 to three community nonprofits.  
 
“Alive After Five truly builds community. People gather to enjoy great live music and appreciate the opportunity to give back to these worthwhile organizations through their beverage tips,” said Lynn Hightower, Executive Director of the Downtown Boise Association. “The Tips for Charity program is an important part of Alive After Five and the members and merchants of Downtown Boise are proud to be part of it.”
