Despite the growing uncertainty around the world, we want to bring some light into it. Rock What You Got is hosting an online silent auction fundraiser to support two causes near and dear to us – eliminating 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, they’re able to succeed in their mission. Their non-profit, FINNEGANS Community Fund, aims to alleviate hunger through sustainable and innovative methods and partnerships, while serving as a catalyst for social entrepreneurs to advance charitable purposes.
The remaining funds will go towards the Minnesota Chapter of the National Independent Venues Association (MNIVA). Their mission is to preserve the ecosystem of independent live music venues and promoters (like us!) throughout the United States. Entertainment hubs play a critical role 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, and they will be the last to open. In addition to the hurdle of reopening, the economic recovery process will require solutions unique to the industry.
