Madison, WI (PRUnderground) July 25th, 2011
Celebrate Madison Nonprofit Day with a wide variety of family-friendly, fun activities and education workshops.
Madison Nonprofit Day is Thursday, August 11, 2011, and you are invited to participate (http://www.madisonnonprofitday.org). Bring friends, family, or even colleagues and “be a part from the start.” We have activities running from the morning to the evening, so start your day with us.
You can join us at Wirth Court Park on Madison’s east side for Art in the Park, a family-friendly event that will keep you and any young children entertained while introducing you to some of Madison’s nonprofits that provide amazing resources for arts, crafts, and performance to the city. Music, storytelling, performance, and games and activities will be available.
Once you’ve gotten your fill of sun and fun, join us for lunch with the Taste of Atwood Luncheon. Some of the Atwood-Schenk neighborhood’s amazing restaurants give back to the community by hosting this pre-cursor to ‘A Taste of Madison.’ Local favorites such as Daisy Cafe & Cupcakery, Monty’s Blue Plate Diner, Bunky’s Cafe, and Lao-Laa Xang join together to provide you a free lunch. Don’t miss it.
There are also photo exhibits, garden strolls, petting tours of rescued farm animals, educational workshops, and so much more. You can pick and choose the activities you want to attend. But we do hope you’ll finish your day watching some of Madison’s finest young thespians, the Young Shakespeare Players, put on a marvelous performance of Romeo & Juliet. From morning to evening you can enjoy the activities, engage with local nonprofits, and enhance your personal or professional education.
Madison Nonprofit Day started as a day to raise awareness about Madison’s diverse nonprofit sector and how it contributes to the daily well-being of the community, and has grown into a full-fledged community event.
“It’s a day of fun and engaging activities that allow the community to explore firsthand many of the services they receive from nonprofits without notice.” said Alnisa Allgood, organizer for Madison Nonprofit Day. “We have kids, parents, grandparents, organizers and activist alike, out and about, having fun, while discovering, learning, and interacting with some of the great nonprofits that serve Madison.”
The full schedule of events and activities is available from the Madison Nonprofit Day website (http://www.madisonnonprofitday.org/schedule). Some workshops and activities have limited participation, so please RSVP to reserve your space.
Thursday, August 11, 2011, is Madison Nonprofit Day and you’re invited to participate from start to finish. You can take part in as many activities as you can find the time for, so plan your day.
