How do you make parting with your hard-earned dollars fun? By creating a giving event, with speakers, food, performances and a toteboard watch party.

The Arkansas Community Foundation's ArkansasGives event from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow, April 2, will drum up support for more than 350 Arkansas nonprofits. The promotion begins with a ribbon-cutting and a talk by Gov. Hutchinson at ArkansasGives headquarters, 1111 W. Capitol Ave. (the AT&T building). There will mobile giving stations set up at the headquarters; you may also give to the charity of your choice through arkansasgives.org via your own phones, tablets or computers.

At 9 a.m. at headquarters, local celebrities, philanthropists and nonprofits representatives will talk about why giving is important. Food trucks will set up at 11 a.m. and stay until 1:30; each truck will donate a portion of their proceeds through ArkansasGives.

ArkansasGives nonprofits will hold 10-minute "flash performances" to explain their missions at 11 a.m. at the River Market and Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts and at noon at the Museum of Discovery.  

Finally, a party to watch how the gifts are stacking up on the arkansasgives.org toteboard starts at 5 p.m. at the ArkansasGives headquarters. There are prizes for nonprofits with the most contributions or most money raised thanks to gifts of $40,000 from First Security Bank and $10,000 from Jane Hunt Meade.

  • Make way for dumplings: Three Fold sets Main Street opening

    Dumpling and noodle maven Lisa Zhang said last week that her Three Fold Noodles and Dumpling Co. will open in bigger digs at 615 Main St. on Monday, Sept. 25. Three Fold will grow 1.5-fold, from 80 seats at its 215 Center St. location to 120 seats on Main and will offer something new: breakfast, featuring bao, steamed and filled buns. Residents of the AR Democrat Lofts, with which the restaurant shares the building, along with Three Fold’s many fans, should be thrilled.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
