    Event Description GROW, the entrepreneur support program of the Charleston Area Alliance, is holding an exclusive crowd-funding event on June 12, from 5:30-7:30pm in the Large Conference Room at the Charleston Area Alliance. The following GROW businesses will be competing for $1,000+ in crowd funds:

      *  Alum Creek Bookbinder
      *  B.Belle Events
      *  Dressmaker's Closet
      *  WV Cheer Academy
      *  WV Miners Basketball

    How it works:

    General admittance is $10/person, collected by advance registration and at the door. This entry fee buys each patron one vote. The businesses will deliver 90 second elevator pitches to all in attendance in an effort to earn their supporting vote. After the conclusion of all business pitches, attendees will cast their vote by text for the business they feel most deserves the cash capital.

    Register in advance by clicking the blue box at top left. Remember to bring your cell phone with you to this event in order to cast your valuable text vote for the business of your choice.

    If you work with an Alliance member business and need assistance locating your password, email Leigh Anne Strickland, Director of Member Programs and Services.

    If you are interested in learning more about the GROW program and obtaining an application to participate in next year's course, contact GROW Project Manager, Steven Romano for information.
