A one-day art and music fundraiser festival GIVE5 will be held on Sunday, May 19.  The event  will take place up and down East and West Main Street in nine different locations - Hart Gallery, State of Confusion, Hi-Fi Clyde’s, The Well, Starline Books, Slicks, VELO, The Granfalloon, Bleu Fox Cheese Shop and Main Terrain Art Park.  Entertainment will include Chattanooga-area performers (art, music, poetry, dance, etc.) like Jennifer Daniels, C-Grimey, Ryan Oyer, Tribe Zanzi and many more. 

Each location will feature a variety of performers with various schedules ranging from 1-10 p.m., will be free to attend and attendees are asked to “give $5”  as a donation.  Donations will help to raise money for two local homeless families.

"Chattanooga creative‘s have a rich history of using their talents and influence to help others. Have you been to a benefit event recently? Most likely, you were entertained by a local performer who has a heart to serve. On May 19 at GIVE5, you have the opportunity to meet about 100 of those same kind of performers," organizers said.
