Mayor teams with Triad Stage to recognize Giving Tuesday
Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan visited Triad Stage on Oct. 21 to sign a proclamation declaring Dec. 3, as Giving Tuesday.
Giving Tuesday is an international day of charitable giving co-founded in 2012 by the 92nd Street Young Men’s and Young Women’s Hebrew Association and the United Nations Foundation. Intended as an alternative to the increasing commercialization of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” it harnesses the collective power of charities, businesses, and individuals to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity worldwide.
“Triad Stage really took the lead in this Giving Tuesday in nonprofits for the holiday season, and making sure that everybody is remembered,” said Mayor Vaughan at the signing ceremony. “I hope that everybody will remember our non-profits as they go about their holiday giving.”
“We at Triad Stage have always included community in our core values,” said Triad Stage development manager Sarah Leonard. “We cannot wait to give back to young people in and around Greensboro on Dec. 3. We thank Mayor Vaughan for standing behind all nonprofits on this global day of giving.”
Triad Stage is in its 19th season and will be accepting donations in order to sponsor free season passes for young people. Anyone under 21 with a valid ID (this includes student IDs) can come to Triad Stage on Dec. 3 and receive first-come-first-serve passes.
