Give Big Green Bay is a 24-hour fundraiser. The inaugural event raised $800,000 for 31 area non-profits.

"It's a real diverse representation of Green Bay's non-profit community. So they're from some of the smallest, most emerging organizations, to some of the largest, most established ones," says Dennis Buehler, President and CEO, Greater Green Bay Community Foundation.

The 24-hour fundraiser will start at noon on Feb. 20.

"A lot of people aren't aware the amount of non-profits that support them. So it's really a chance for us to celebrate that work, but also connect individuals with those organizations and causes that are really important to them," Buehler says.
