Mark your calendars for the 3rd Annual Cool Down for Warmth event – Tuesday January 31 and Wednesday February 1, 2017. The event has become an annual fundraiser is part of Dollar Energy Fund’s goal to help local families maintain or restore their utilities, especially their heat this winter. This year, the unique fundraising opportunity will include an even bigger ice house, which will be constructed in downtown Pittsburgh in Market Square. Willing participants will stay in the house until they have met their fundraising goal of $2,500 for a team, or $1,000 for an individual. All donations will receive a dollar-for-dollar match from our partnering utility companies and 100 percent of the donations and matching funds will be used to provide utility assistance grants to local families in need through Dollar Energy Fund’s Hardship Program.
Willing participants will stay in the house until they have met their minimum fundraising goal. There will also be plenty of opportunities to donate on the spot, take and share selfies in front of a “selfie wall” made of ice, sample food and beverages from local restaurants and bars, and participate in many other activities throughout the week.
If you would like to participate in this fundraiser, sign up today at www.crowdrise.com/CoolDownForWarmth2017.
