Wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
On Thursday, we were live on our Facebook page for over 12 hours. 💗🌈💗
Our main goal was to raise funds for The Center, so we could continue supporting our community and educating our region about sexual orientation and gender identity. Together we raised $10,205 by the end of our after-party Thursday night!
More donations are coming in this weekend and through the mail, so we know that number will continue to grow.
Though the event was a fundraiser, it was so much more than that. It was an opportunity for members of our community to share their stories about discovering who they are, coming out, finding love, discovering their purpose, finding their people, and all the joys and lessons in between.
It was a chance for us to share more about what exactly The Center does and who keeps it running smoothly. 💗🌈💗
Beyond all of this, we wanted to spend the day with you-- our friends, our family, and our allies. We wanted to entertain you, connect with you, and inspire you. 💗🌈💗
Grateful doesn't begin to describe how we feel for you supporting us on GiveOUT Day! 💗🌈💗
Your donations will allow us to serve even more people this year. Your likes, hearts, comments, and shares of our live videos brought The Center: 7 Rivers LGBTQ Connection to the hearts and minds of so many people. Your support is the fuel that keeps us going each day.
So, humbly, we offer our gratitude and our thanks for you!
With 🌈 & 💗,
All of us here at The Center
