NOVEMBER 30 @ 7PM | VIRTUAL EVENT
Celebrate GivingTuesday with a free concert! Join soul singer and bassist Gwenyth Hayes virtually from Leon Loft and help us raise $25,000 for a beloved community tradition.
Throughout the day, we'll be raising funds to strengthen and sustain A2SF as we plan for a much-anticipated return to Top of the Park next year. Tune in at 7:00pm EST Tuesday, November 30 on our social media channels to enjoy the show.
Last year, you helped us blow the roof off GivingTuesday with virtual concerts. Your support helped A2SF navigate a global pandemic, and produce a summer of neighborhood pop-up concerts throughout Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.
Want to get started early? Donate anytime before December 1 and your gift will be counted towards our GivingTuesday goal. You can make your gift by visiting a2sf.org/donate.
