The fact that Dayton was recognized on the Travelocity list of 25 Most Giving Cities in the U.S. is no surprise to us at MostMetro.com. Having put together the most comprehensive list of charity events in the region for the last 10 years, we’ve seen how many people are willing to give back and help others in this community. We’ve got a list of area fish fry’s that make a difference to so many and each week, Fifth Street Brewpub allows different non-profits to guest bartend each Monday to raise funds and Old Scratch Pizza has Cones for a Cause Program that has raised over $20,000 dollars for area charity’s in the past year and Warped Wing Brewery and Milano’s are just a couple of the local businesses that have established fundraising programs.
It’s hard to choose which events to support each month, but here are suggestions for February Fundraisers:
A Special Wish Foundation Annual Valentines Dance
Friday, February 9 @ 7 pm – 11:30 pm $150/person
A Special Wish Foundation – Dayton has been making special wishes come true for local children for over 30 years. These wishes wouldn’t be possible without the continued generosity of the community. I ask you to join ASW and continue to give local wish kids and their families’ memories that will last a lifetime.
The 13th Annual Valentines Dance benefiting The Dayton Chapter of A Special Wish Foundation is the area’s only wish-granting organization! This fun and unique event will be held at the Wright State University Nutter Center on Friday, February 9th, 2018.
