365 Things To Do In Wheeling.

#18. Show of Hands. 

"If only Wheeling had a vehicle for entrepreneurs to get crowd funding..."

In their words - 

Show of Hands is an event where residents can learn about projects that contribute to the betterment of downtown Wheeling. Attendees cast a vote for the project they would like to support with the funds raised through donations at the door. We will be asking attendees for a donation of $5 or more. 

Through a sponsorship from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, the winner will also receive $1,000 in addition to the donations from the door.

If you or someone you know is working on a community project and would like some funding to help move the project along, please follow the link below to the application. All projects are welcome to apply, but only four will be chosen to present at the first Show of Hands event. 

When: Thursday, May 15, 6pm
Where: Future Children's Museum of the Ohio Valley (2112 Market Street - formerly "Living Word Church")

A $5 donation gets you a vote, and a $10 or more donation gets you 60 seconds to make an announcement regarding something you or your organization is doing.

Heavy hors d'oeuvres will be provided by Quaker Steak & Lube.
