We're officially inviting local nonprofit organizations to submit an application to be featured at Four A Cause 2019, the fourth annual charity event of its kind. Celebrating four local nonprofit organizations, the event will be held at Aura on Thursday, November 21 from 4 to 9 p.m. Admission is free to the public.
|Tom and Amy Landry of Benchmark Real Estate are the founders of Four A Cause, which benefits Portland area nonprofits each November.|
We encourage local nonprofits to let us know why their respective nonprofit should be chosen as one of the final four. If you're interested in applying, you must create a short video about your organization and its mission, the impact you have on the Greater Portland community, why you should be chosen, and what it would mean to your organization and those you serve. This can be a casual, short video shot on an iPhone, and should be no longer than one minute.
To make your video accessible, simply upload it to YouTube or Vimeo and include the link to the video with your application. You can also use the hashtag #FourACause2019 on a public Facebook or Instagram video by the end of the day on Sunday, September 15. Voting opens on Monday, September 16, at 12 p.m. Once we have verified that you qualify under the rules and approve your video, you will receive an email with instructions on how to collect votes.
Voting closes on Monday, September 30, at 12 p.m. The top four videos with the most likes will secure a table at the November 21 event. The final four will be announced on Thursday, October 10.
Last year, The Healing Tribe, Prosperity Maine, Special Surfers, and Team Hailey Hugs were named the four finalists. The Healing Tribe's promotional video can be viewed here.
