We are grateful to FirstBank for funding $100,000 in prizes for nonprofits participating in Colorado Gives Day 2017.
Grand Prize - $25,000
A cash-blowing machine drawing was broadcast live via Facebook from the FirstBank Center on December 15. During it FirstBank drew one nonprofit name from all entries. Nonprofits were automatically entered into the drawing if it received 10 or more donations on Colorado Gives Day (December 5). Donations made on December 5, or scheduled to process on December 5, qualified.
Congratulations to our winner, Humane Society of the South Platte Valley!
