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.
