Thanks from Pride Brunch organizers

We're thrilled to report that the 19th annual Pride Brunch June 24 generated $55,000 in revenue, with proceeds supporting the Positive Resource Center. More than 300 guests enjoyed the hosted bars by Barefoot Wine and Bubbly and Tito's Handmade Vodka, the lively music by the Dixieland Dykes +3 band, decor by Tom Taylor and Sparky's Fun & Joy, florals by CoCo Butter and Deana Dawn, and centerpiece by IXIA. We'd also like to thank our presenting sponsor Wells Fargo, other sponsors and hosts, Meng Zhang and her amazing staff at the Hotel Whitcomb, PRC staff, media sponsor San Francisco Bay Times, graphics by Karin Jaffie, sound by Ingu Yun and Randy Pocius, our many dedicated volunteers, and donors to the raffle and auction. 

Of course, the highlight of this annual benefit is meeting and hearing personal remarks from the grand marshals and honorees. We were honored to salute and hear from Marcy Adelman, Ph.D., Brett Andrews, Bay Area American Two-Spirits, Blackberri, Chris Carnes, Cassandra Cass, El/La Para TransLatina, Alex U. Inn, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, and Amy Sueyoshi. 

This year's benefit was a fun nod to the Summer of Love 50th anniversary and a demonstration of this year's SF Pride theme, "A Celebration of Diversity." We look forward to our 20th anniversary Pride Brunch next year.
