Remember Christmas With Us and 96 Hours of Caring? Well, we decided to combine them to create an ultimate give-back event called '35 Days of Giving.'

Townsquare Media loves nothing more than giving back to the Bismarck-Mandan area. We teamed up with Cash Wise and other amazing sponsors to create this new event. 35 Days of Giving will give us the opportunity to give back to some local non-profit organizations along with five local families.

The first element to 35 Days is the non-profits. Beginning Monday, October 30th, you can purchase food donation bags, which feed a family of four, at Cash Wise. Our goal is to collect enough to fill an entire Go Mini. These food donations will be distributed between the following charities:

On top of that, Cash Wise will be donating one dollar for each bag sold to benefit a local family in need. That's where the second element comes into play. Starting Monday, October 23rd, you will be able to nominate families in need right here at our website.

We will be collecting nominations through Monday, November 20th. Each week, a panel of judges will choose a family to receive a gift from our incredible sponsors. Those families will then have a chance to receive an additional grand gift which includes the money donated by Cash Wise. You will get to vote on which family needs the Grand Gift the most. Voting will take place from Saturday, November 25th through Sunday, December 3rd. The Grand Gift recipient will be announced on Tuesday, December 5th.

We are so excited for the opportunity to give back to Bismarck-Mandan, but none of it would be possible without the following sponsors:

Townsquare Media will be broadcasting live from Cash Wise October 30th through November 2nd from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Drop by, say hello and purchase a donation bag!
