This is a one day online giving event with 582 participating Arkansas based non-profit organizations. Last year we raised over $2,000.00 to help fund Humane Society of the Ozarks programs and we would love to double that amount this year! You can learn more about the Arkansas Gives Day and the Arkansas Community Foundation on their website: Arkansas Gives, Grow the Love. Be watching our social media for more updates in the next few weeks!

All of the information and registration is available on their website: Fayetteville 5k Poker Run
