Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More than 350 non-profits gathered in downtown Louisville today to celebrate their work and rally for support.

The Give Local Louisville rally was hosted by the Community Foundation of Louisville at 4th Street Live!

The Sam Swope Family Foundation surprised each non-profit organization with a $1,000 donation.

Louisville non-profit Twisted Pink, which raises money to give to metastatic breast cancer research, says events like Give Local Louisville are necessary to succeed. 

"It's great to have the community awareness of this organization," said Caroline Johnson, founder of Twisted Pink. "One-hundred percent of the funding that is given today will go straight to research."

Give Local Louisville is also collecting donations online until midnight tonight.
