Pledge 5's First Friday series in downtown Gainesville consists of monthly events, with themes. Regardless of the month, the events feature live music on multiple stages, local art, and special deals at participating venues. July's Vegas theme includes a family-friendly casino with a variety of games, a silent auction with prizes, an Elvis look-alike contest, performances by local artists, and an chance to win a cruise for two to the Bahamas. VIP wristbands entitle visitors to free drinks and food, valet parking, and carriage rides.
As a nonprofit organization that organizes philanthropic events for other nonprofit organizations, the Pledge 5 Foundation conducts food, clothing, and public-service pledge drives for its numerous charity partners. In conjunction with each of these charity drives, it hosts community-centered promotional events—pub crawls, pet adoptions, and tailgating parties—that aim to inspire people to give back to their community. Pledge 5's staff, interns, student association, and service chamber all work to create positive change throughout the Gainesville community by stimulating local commerce and planting popsicle gardens.
