Boise’s Alive After Five Gives Back, Beverage Tips go to Three Nonprofits

Alive After Five, presented by Delta Air Lines begins June 7, returning to the
beautiful renovated Grove Plaza. As music fans enjoy a variety of beverages, tips to
beverage servers will benefit three very worthwhile non-profits.
More than $13,000 was donated to four local non-profits after a full season of
free concerts last summer. Event organizers, the Downtown Boise Association, hope
fans are equally generous this year as the tips are another way Alive After Five
celebrates community.
Volunteers from Boise Bicycle Project will help sell and serve beverages during
the month of June. All tips benefit BBP, a nonprofit community cooperative that
promotes the personal, social & environmental benefits of bicycling. BBP functions as a
bicycle recycling center & educational workspace in a diverse & non-threatening
atmosphere. Through education & access to affordable refurbished bicycles BBP strives
to build a stronger bicycling community.
The WCA benefits from beverage tips as their volunteers assist Alive After Five
the month of July. For more than 30 years, the Women's & Children's Alliance has been
at the forefront of providing services to women, men and their children healing
from domestic abuse and sexual assault. Since its founding, the WCA's crisis program
has evolved into one of the most vital, unduplicated, comprehensive programs in our
community and region. The WCA is proud to be a community leader in providing these
critically needed services.
The Burnout Fund provides short term assistance to families whose homes are
destroyed by fire. Boise Firefighters will serve beverages the month of August collecting
tips to benefit the fund. Burnout Fund representatives respond to emergencies to
provide immediate assistance to an individual or family that may include vouchers for
lodging, food, immediate personal care needs.
