Give Into The Groove's mission is to raise awareness for local charities and encourage people of all ages to get involved in philanthropy. Year round, our organization sponsors creative events and community projects that encourage affordable giving and volunteerism.

Give Into The Groove was started by self-proclaimed groovalutionary ellee ven.

Aside from her music, ellee ven’s most proud of how she’s giving back to her community via the fundraising and awareness event called Give into the Groove.  ellee ven founded Give into the Groove in 2001. She says, “The goal is to combine fun and philanthropy and redefine charity for a new generation."

No gift is too big or too small!
