Pride Charlotte welcomes Drake Dentistry as first Leadership Sponsor

Pride Charlotte is excited to announce that Drake Dentistry of Charlotte has signed on as our first Leadership sponsor for 2011.

Drake Dentistry’s generosity shows their commitment to the LGBT community and sets an example for other businesses. Their donation helps keep entry into the festival free for all attendees and ultimately supports the LGBT Community Center of Charlotte in their quest to provide services and programming to Charlotte’s LGBT community.

“Contributing to the community is an important part of our mission at Drake Dentistry,” said Dr. Joe Richard Drake. “Supporting the LGBT community is a passion for us and the right thing to do. As a result of the visibility in the community, we have developed a wonderful clientele that wants premium services and results. Because of the return we have seen in the past from such efforts, we are happy to contribute to Pride Charlotte.”

Dr. Drake added, “Pride Charlotte gives not only the LGBT community and supporters an opportunity to come together, but the festival is for everyone. Pride Charlotte is important and adds value because it provides a safe, fun, and welcoming environment where everyone is welcome no matter what your background.”

Pride Charlotte hopes that you support our sponsors by giving them your business. Give Drake a call to setup an appointment or visit Drake Dentistry’s website for a complete list of general and cosmetic dental services.
