On behalf of Charlotte Pride we would like to thank you for your generous donation. Your contribution helps to support and further Charlotte Pride’s mission of celebrating and empowering the LGBTQ community.
Your generous support this year will allow us to continue serving the Charlotte region’s LGBTQ and ally populations. We are committed to the expansion and growth of the Charlotte Pride Parade, reintroduced in 2013 for the first time since 1994. Your support also helps us to expand headline entertainment and will help fund a planned expansion of our festival footprint, providing space for more community organizations than ever. Last year we saw another surge in attendance, with estimates of over 100,000 visitors over the course of the weekend. And for second consecutive year, the mayor of Charlotte made a formal proclamation declaring August 16 and 17, 2014, as Charlotte Pride Weekend.
We have certainly come a long way with the generous support of community members such as you, and we cannot wait to do it again on August 15 and 16, 2015!
The Charlotte Pride Executive Committee
