Posted on May 8, 2019 by Staff reports

Wind Creek Hospitality (WCH) announces its inaugural Partners in Progress Video Contest that aims to fund seven nonprofits in Alabama and North Florida. Verified 501(c)(3) organizations may enter for a chance to win a share of $125,000.

WCH Spokesperson, Danielle Sanspree, “Wind Creek is fortunate to be able to give back in our communities and there are so many organizations doing great work. The idea behind this contest is to give nonprofits a platform to tell their stories to a larger audience and then to learn what non-profits people want us to support.”

Nonprofits interested in participating have through May 14th to visit the contest website, submit an entry form and upload a short video explaining how they make a difference. Starting May 16th, all qualifying entry videos will be posted on the contest website and voting will begin. The seven nonprofits to receive the most votes by May 31st will win a share of $125,000 according to the list below:

  • ·      1st place: $40,000
  • ·      2nd place: $30,000
  • ·      3rd place: $15,000
  • ·      4th place – 7th place will each receive $10,000 

Sanspree said she hopes people will jump behind the effort by making sure their favorite organizations enter the contest and then by encouraging friends and family to vote. “Nonprofits provide resources that no one else can or will; they stand in the gaps every day. This is a way for us to let them know they aren’t standing alone.”
