At GigMasters, we love giving back to our community just as much as we love parties!  That’s why a few weeks ago, we asked non-profit organizations and charities to describe their “Party with a Purpose” for the chance to win a prize package worth over $1200.

Today, we’re pleased to announce the Party with a Purpose Semi-Finalists, and your opportunity to vote for the winner. We received so many thoughtful, moving submissions.
