As the largest non-profit festival in the U.S., and a first of its kind, PhilanthroFest, now in its 3rd year, brings more than 100 of South Florida’s non-profit agencies together, connecting them with the community for a day full of purpose. This year’s event takes place Sat., Apr. 12 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at Miami-Dade College’s Wolfson Campus, with free admission for South Florida residents. “We’re creating a community of change-makers and empowering non-profits with resources to help them excel,” says Estrellita Sibila, Executive Director of PhilanthroFest. “Our fundamental mission has always been — and will always be — to unite our community by igniting the philanthropic spirit of anyone who wants to make a difference.” This year, attendees will have the chance to learn about the resources that make our community strive and develop while enjoying a plethora of entertainment options, live performances and educational demonstrations that are sure to inspire kids and adults alike;
