DCLGBTPF Pride Celebration

We at DCLGBTPF are proud to announce OUR TIME has come for OUR 1st Pride Celebration, We will be holding it at the Davidson County Fairgrounds on 5/16/15 from 10:00am-6:00pm, But our festivities will begin on 5/15/15 at our Home Base Location on Zimmerman rd. Lexington NC, With our Camp-Out Tail-Gating Gathering which will last until 5/17/15. Our after Party will also be at Our home base location.
Our Objective & Goal Is Simple: "To Do Good & Be Good" We based this Pride Event on giving back to OUR Community as a Whole, We chose 2 Charities "Pastor's Pantry, N. State St Lexington with Our "Fill The Truck Campaign" & Positive Wellness Alliance, E Center St Lexington NC" & We chose 1 Family in OUR Community to help!
Dakota Rain has organized all of Our Entertainment and Speakers with 24 performances,  2 local Bands, 2 Guest Speakers & Wedding. Most definately a "Do Not Want To Miss Event!"
We originally started planning on having this event in an Open Field on Zimmerman Rd, The more we got into it the more we grew, until we made it to the fairgrounds which is actually a year before we thought we would. So I can say without a doubt the Community has stepped up to make this a year to remember.
Everything has been made possible through hard work & determination of OUR Founders & Committee: Lori Polston, Dakota Rain & Ann Huffman "Founders"  DJ Huffman, Liz Yarro, Jamie Nelms, Greg Hege, & Derrick Lambeth "Committee".
We invite everyone to check out our Group Page On FaceBook "LGBT Pride May 16th 2015 Davidson County" or to feel free to email us at davidsoncountylgbtpride@gmail.com , Or send any of the Committee a message on Facebook.
We hope to see each of you there & don't forget to bring us can food for our "Fill The Truck Campaign"
"Do Good & Be Good"
