CHICAGO, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GIV Mobile, the first consumer conscious no-contract mobile service that is dedicated to donating 8% of monthly "Unlimited Everything" plans to a non-profit charity of the customer's choice, will be the Presenting Sponsor at the second annual Hilarity for Charity event. The event will take place at the Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles on April 25, 2013. Hilarity for Charity, presented by GIV Mobile, is a one-of-a-kind, and most importantly, hilarious event to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer's among a younger generation. Last year's inaugural sold-out event raised more than $300,000 for the care, support and research programs of the Alzheimer's Association.
This event will serve as GIV Mobile's pre-launch party, as the company will officially debut May 15, 2013. GIV Mobile's revolutionary mobile service allows members to effortlessly contribute to their favorite charities every month with GIV Mobile's two affordable "Unlimited Everything" no-contract plans.
