Each year, the Asheville Downtown Association selects five local nonprofits to sell wristbands at the Downtown After 5 Concert Series. The nonprofit receives a grant of $2,000 and has the opportunity to display marketing materials to share their program of work with the DA5 audience. This year, we are adding the Independence Day Celebration as an opportunity as well. Nonprofits provide 30 volunteers over 18 to work in two shifts between approximately 5 and 9:30pm. Volunteers check IDs and sell wristbands to patrons. The nonprofit will also have an opportunity to receive its check on the stage and share remarks with the crowd. Applications are due by March 1 and selections will be made by March 18. Submit the application here.
