About "The Gazette Gives Back" event

All too often, nonprofits struggle to have the means to raise awareness about the critical resources they provide. The very tools that will enable them to share their story has been limited, until now.  In 2019, The Gazette will provide $525,000 in free advertising to area nonprofits to help their messages soar. Who gets what? It's all about reader votes.

From 2019 GGB participant Jan Erceg of Critter Crusaders:

"Just an opportunity to say a huge Thank You for this amazing program from all of us at Critter Crusaders.  We had this sign made and it goes with us to each of our events for display.  Last Friday was our HUGE Wine Tasting at the 1st. Ave Wine House! The GGB provided large 1/8 page ads for the fundraiser.  We estimate that we had over 150 attendees which was tremendous.   I also talked about the GGB program as part of the event program and all of the amazing non-profits who are assisted!  We sing your praises and we mean every word.  Thank you all so much for helping us and our community organizations!  Our left over food was donated to another GGB recipient, The Freedom Foundation, serving our veterans.
