Venture Café Takeover Night: Impact

12/12/2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We get it—your time is valuable. So are your talent and treasure. So, how can you make the biggest impact? What are the greatest needs in the community, and which organization could benefit most from your unique skills? Mingle with local nonprofits as they pitch their community initiatives—and find your ideal place to start effecting change—as the Innovation Quarter takes over the programming for this unique Venture Café Winston-Salem Thursday Gathering.

Join us at 5 pm for Connections with live jazz music and hors d’oeuvres.

5 – 8 pm: Decorate a bag to fill and give back to a person or an organization during the holiday season. We’ll provide the materials for you to decorate a festive bag you can then fill your with toiletries and give to person in need or at a local shelter, or fill it with a batch of your famous cookies and give to a neighbor who’s been on your mind—anything that would bring joy and create connection with someone else.

6 – 7 pm: Presented by Love Out Loud, this hour of opportunity will introduce eight local nonprofits making impactful change in Winston-Salem. Hear five-minute pitches from a variety of organizations—and discover immediate ways to make your mark in our community.

7 – 8 pm: Visit information tables and network with representatives from each of the presenting nonprofits. This is the perfect time to sign up to contribute or pick up materials to share with others.
