September 5, 2018
Alive After Five ended it's 2018 summer season with a terrific concert just one week ago, but fans still have something to celebrate. Tips donated at the beverage stations totaled more than $18,000 for the season. The Downtown Boise Association will distribute the donations to the three local nonprofits who provided this year's volunteer support for Alive After Five; the Women's and Children's Alliance, CATCH: Charitable Assistance to the Community's Homeless, and the Boise Firefighters Burnout Fund.
Alive After Five, Presented by Delta Air Lines and supported by the Capital City Development Corporation, celebrated it's 32 season with 13 weeks of free summer concerts on The Grove Plaza each Wednesday June through August. Volunteers from each of the three nonprofits helped staff the beverage booths.
"Alive After Five brings people together to enjoy live music, and to celebrate and build community in the heart of our city, our downtown. Fan support for Tips for Charity shares that community spirit and truly helps make this free summer concert series possible. The members and merchants of the Downtown Boise Association, along with our DBA staff are proud to be a part of it," said Lynn Hightower, Executive Director of the Downtown Boise Association.
