Virtual First Friday, gift card fundraiser to kick off the month of May

The May First Friday hasn’t necessarily been canceled for this evening, but instead of being held in person, it will be held as a virtual event.

Tonight’s event will feature live music from Sam Ule on the First Friday Facebook page from 7 to 8 PM. There will also be an at-home sidewalk chalk competition from 6 to 6:45 PM. In this contest, contestants must take a photo of their work and then post it on Facebook and tagging the First Friday Facebook page. Winners will receive a $50 gift card to their downtown business of choice.

Friday also kicks off the Downtown Warsaw Gift Card fundraiser, which will run through Sunday, May 10th at 11:59 PM. Community members will be able to support their favorite downtown businesses by purchasing gift cards online at the Warsaw Community Development Corporation website.
