Sponsorship Helps to Build Our Community
We are sad to report the cancellation of the 2020 Blue Ridge Pride Festival. However, public safety is our #1 priority. Given all the turmoil our community is experiencing, we will be using this time to listen. We will be reaching out to community members to elicit needs, concerns, and suggestions for 2021.
Sponsorships do so much more than support our festival. All net proceeds from the festival support other community-building programs. During the past two years, our sponsors have enabled us to expand into several new programs:
- Community Partner Fund
- WNC LGBTQ Oral History Project
- WNC Virtual LGBTQ Center
During its first year, the Partner Fund distributed $7,500 to WNC community organizations. The Oral History Project has captured the lives of thirty area residents in its first six months. We have another 80 we are in the procession of capturing. Our virtual center offers a directory of over 60 shared interest groups and over 60 welcoming communities of faith. Sponsorships help to make this happen. And we thank you!
