Rockford Area Pride Committee Seeks Partnership with Local Businesses and Launches Sticker Fundraising Campaign for 2024 Pride Parade

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Rockford, January 20, 2024 — The Rockford Area Pride Committee is excited to introduce a special fundraising initiative in preparation for the 2024 Pride Parade. In exchange for a $2.00 donation, community members can actively contribute to the parade's success and, as a gesture of gratitude, receive a limited-edition, 2-inch, UV-resistant sticker featuring the official Rockford Area Pride roundel logo.


Darcy Pinasco, Fundraising Director, expressed enthusiasm for the campaign, stating, "Our stickers serve as a tangible connection between the community and the Pride Parade. The stickers are designed to be proudly displayed on vehicles, offices, and homes. With a $2.00 donation, individuals support the parade and become ambassadors of pride and inclusivity."


The Committee also seeks to partner with local businesses by requesting businesses accept donations and distribute stickers to donors on behalf of the Committee. Local businesses interested in supporting the cause are invited to contact the committee via email at Info@Rockfordareapride.org. Upon connection, businesses will receive up to 50 stickers to facilitate the acceptance of donations on behalf of the committee, fostering a community-wide effort to make the 2024 Pride Parade a resounding success.


The Committee has created a flyer for businesses to display, showing both that they support Rockford Area Pride and that donations and stickers can be found at that location.
