KNOXVILLE, TN. – Are you good with music trivia? Get a chance to participate in a contest that will take you down memory lane and help to promote the importance of local charities. Noted leadership expert, Dr. Daryl D. Green will be kicking off his “Do You Know Your ‘Old School’ Soul” Music Trivia Contest on March 23, 2013 on his social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest). Winners will obtain a variety of prizes.
Nonprofit organizations continue to struggle as millions of Americans recover from the recession of 2008. There were approximately 1.4 million nonprofit organizations registered by the IRS in 2005. In fact, 74% of all public charities and 83% of all foundations are small; they have less than $500,000 in expenses and a limited staff. As a result of large corporations and foundations cut backs, there is an opportunity for individual contributors to increase, thereby developing a new market of small donor philanthropy.
This online music contest will celebrate great R&B music throughout the 60’s and beyond. Starting on March 23rd, Dr. Green will provide one clue per day for 21 days. Participants will need to get a copy of the official forms on Dr. Green’s social media platforms. A completed music trivia form must be submitted (e-mailed) to Dr. Green at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 11th, at 11:59pm. Entries will be timed stamped and will be selected on a first come, first serve basis. The individuals who complete the trivia questions with the most correct answers will be determined to the winners. The top three winners will be recognized and awarded a virtual prize. Dr. Green will provide at least one of his latest publications as a prize. Dr. Green notes, “It’s a fun contest that showcases the best in music. Using social media is an excellent way to promote our charity event.”
Dr. Green co-authored the book Second Chance with Noriko I. Chapman. The book provides an in-depth case study on a nonprofit organization’s resource allocation and operational optimization. The two pledged 30 percent of the proceeds of the book to a local nonprofit, assisting adults with disabilities.
This contest helps to promote a social cause. Dr. Daryl D. Green will host an event to help charities reach the next level at a free book signing and Dance-A-Thon. The event is Saturday, April 13, 2013, from 7-10 p.m. at the Champion Ballroom in Knoxville, TN. Dr. Green regularly donates his time and finances to local community causes. Some of these organizations have included the Knoxville Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., Tennessee Rehabilitation Center, UUNIK Academy, Oak Ridge Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, area churches, and local schools. “If you are involved in a charity, please come to this event. My passion in life is helping people and when I help charities become better, then my work is magnified many times over.” Dr. Green said. The dance is also being held as a charity fundraiser.
