MADISON’S BAR HOSTS FUNDRAISING FRIDAYS TO HELP NON-PROFIT NEIGHBORS July 24 benefits Opera Carolina! Madison’s, an Uptown bar on E. Fifth Street will host “Fundraising Fridays,” a weekly event kicking off July 10 to benefit local non-profit neighbors hurt by budget cuts and a tough economy. “Every day we hear about yet another non-profit hurt by the recession – some of them our Uptown neighbors,” said Tommy Timmins, co-owner of Madison’s, Connolly’s, The Attic and Tyber Creek Pub. “With Fundraising Fridays, we hope to help these organizations increase their donor base and play a small part in their turnaround.” Beginning July 10, Fundraising Fridays will run for eight weeks, four in July and four in August. The after work socials, which run from 6-9 p.m. with a cover charge of $10 that goes directly to the charity, will offer $2 Bud Light and $4 wine specials. Established in 2003, Madison’s Bar is located at 115 E. Fifth Street in Uptown Charlotte. Visit www.madisonsbar.com for more information.
