From 5pm-7pm, Downtown Gadsden Inc. will be partnering with The United Way to host the fifth annual “Downtown Gadsden Gives Back” event.  This event is to help local, nonprofit organizations make the public more aware of their missions and to have some fun while doing it.

Downtown Gadsden Gives Back is for nonprofit organizations with a 501(c)(3) title.  Organizations have the opportunity to set up an information table and most groups have games and other fun activities for everyone to participate in.  This event is to raise awareness, not to raise funds.  If you are involved in an organization that would like to participate in the event, please contact the DGI office at 256.547.8696.  The deadline to join the event is Monday, February 27th.

Broad Street will be closed from 3rd-7th streets.  Classic Cars are invited to attend.
