There’s certain elements that can transform a 2-day concert into a 2-day festival and one of them has consistently been the Do More Village at 80-35. This will be the 5th year that Young Professionals Connection will be hosting the village along Locust street as a showcase of differing organizations and Non-profits throughout Central Iowa. The message to “Do More” is pretty obvious for anyone who heads through this portion of 80-35 each year.
For organizations looking to sign-up, the DEADLINE IS TODAY for applications. Many of the groups from previous years have already secured their spots, as the returning non-profits have found immediate ROI by engaging with thousands of the festival attendees. For the org’s that have not signed up
yet, details and a link to YPC registration are below:
