About The 2021 Pride Fest Auction

Donate an item to the auction

 

The Windsor-Essex Pride Fest is pleased to announce the 1st Annual Pride Fest Auction which will take place online September 10-12, 2021 and we invite you to consider supporting us by making a donation of an auction item to assist in raising much-needed funds for our organization.

Your interest in making a contribution to our organization is not only socially progressive, it shows your support for equality and diversity in Windsor-Essex through our many social programs/activities that raise awareness of ongoing social challenges including discrimination, exclusion, harassment, and assault.

Those businesses who support us through making a donation of an auction item will receive recognition benefits including business name/logo recognition on our website, print recognition in our Pride Fest Program, and more which is outlined below.

Windsor-Essex Pride Fest is a dynamic non-profit organization that delivers a number of unique events and programs which contribute to the vibrancy, health, and well-being of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer and Two-Spirit (LGBTQ2S+) residents in Windsor-Essex and as a result, strengthen the community overall. This is our 29th year of producing our annual festival which is one of the region’s largest and a host of numerous year-round social programs and activities. Year after year we move society closer to ending discrimination by bringing diverse audiences together to raise awareness of today’s ongoing social challenges. Our success lays in creating experiences that are universally enjoyable in places based on the concept of love, allyship, and compassion.

As you no doubt know all-too-well, COVID-19 has affected us all both physically and financially and forced a rethink of how we do things. Our organization is no different and since the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff are our first priority, we have made extensive plans and changes, including hosting a virtual festival with smaller physical components.

The 2021 Windsor-Essex Pride Fest will take place at Lanspeary Park from September 10-12, 2021.

Windsor-Essex Pride Fest has always been more than just a festival. As an organization, it has always been our mandate to empower our members and members of the LGBTQ2S+ community to connect with one another and be a part of the larger community. We have always done our best to facilitate opportunities for connection and belonging through activities and initiatives as well as social/recreational programs and special events. All of these activities, programs, and events address social isolation and help to create a community that is more accommodating, resilient, and engaged to the broader LGBTQ2S+ community in Windsor-Essex. A lack of peer or social support, activities, gatherings or other resources in the community can lead to social isolation that often escalates into a number of problems including homelessness, depression, violence, and often, suicidal ideation.

This auction donation package provides you with several opportunities to show your support for equality and diversity in our community. LBGTQ2S+ consumers are well-documented for their loyalty and support of businesses they perceive as being supportive of them. There are a number of options to choose from so be bold, be proactive, and sign on today. Building bridges is always smart, and what better way than to build one that directly contributes to strengthening the community we all call home.

We thank you for your consideration of our Pride Fest auction donation request and we hope you can support the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest, its programs, and the LGBTQ2S+ community in our region.
