Rock What You Got is hosting an online silent auction fundraiser to support two causes near and dear to us – stomping out local food insecurities and preserving live events! CLICK HERE to bid on items! But don’t wait, this online silent auction only runs from now until noon on October 12th. Best of all, proceeds will go to support our partners FINNEGANS Brew Co. and the Minnesota Chapter of the National Independent Event Association (MNIVA).
First, 2/3 of all funds raised will go to FINNEGANS Brew Co. – a Social Benefit Corp that commits to donating 100% of profits to feeding the hungry, by funding local produce for local food shelves. Plus, their non-profit FINNEGANS Community Fund whose mission is to alleviate hunger through sustainable, scalable, and innovative methods and partnerships and to serve as a catalyst for social entrepreneurs to advance charitable purposes.
Second, the remaining funds will go to support the Minnesota Chapter of the National Independent Venues Association (MNIVA). Their mission is to preserve and nurture the ecosystem of independent live music venues and promoters (like us!) throughout the United States. As a matter of fact, entertainment hubs play a critical roll in local economies. For example, they generate revenue for neighboring businesses such as restaurants, hotels, and retail. Independent venues were the first to be closed, they will be the last to open. As a result, the economic recovery process will extend past just reopening the front doors, requiring solutions unique to the industry.
