#GoodNewsNM Six local nonprofits present their good work to a room filled with 700 people. A check for $500 sits on every table ready to be awarded to one of the nonprofits. Generous corporate donors wait in the wings to add even bigger contributions once the Great Grant Giveaway is underway. And, at the end of the process, $90,000 or more is in the hands of the nonprofits to support the causes they represent.  Don’t miss it! http://goo.gl/k3HysU
