Seattle PrideFest magically turned into a non-profit awhile back so now they have the joy of putting on FUNDRAISERS so they can continue to do magical things like put on terrific Seattle Pride Festival events during our annual celebrations on the last weekend in June AND help keep those events FREE for everyone! Remember, Seattle is one of the few major metropolitan cities to put on Pride events that are free to the public; most cities charge admission prices to see staged events!
To kick off the fundraising cycle, PrideFest is putting on a fun event this October; the Mad Hatter Fundraising Dinner Gala will take place Saturday, October 24, 2015 (one month away from today!) at the Russian Community Center on Capitol Hill.
From their press release:
This is our first ever fundraising gala and we have tons of fun in store for you!
It is our hope that the contributions we raise this year will help us to continue to keep Seattle PrideFest free, develop grant programs for burgeoning pride organizations in rural areas and around the globe, and continue to contribute to the fight for equality.
Here’s more skinny for you…if you snatch tickets NOW you can save some money on this sure to be fabulous event. We can’t name any names, but we know many of your favorite local entertainers will be on hand.
