Steve White Memorial Fund

$11,170 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 257 people in 54 months
Update: today we sadly have to report that Steve passed away. All funds will now be donated in his memory to his family for funeral costs and all their needs. Please continue to donate to help them our in this sad time.

The Q Lounge is raising money for Steven White, a member of our community whom we consider family. He was brutally assaulted and badly burned early Sunday morning and is in need of lots of medical assistance. He is not only a patron of this bar but he is considered a family member as many of our patrons are. Anything you can spare to donate will go to his family to help with medical bills.

If you are able to, please attend our benefit on Saturday November 15th from 2-6 PLEASE come out and support our cause. If you would like to be a vendor or donate in another way, please in box the Q's Facebook. Nothing you donate is too small. Anything and everything helps. We will hold a silent auction with all donated goods and sell donated food as well. We will have performers and music. All proceeds from the entire day will be donated to the family to help with medical expenses and all other bills they incur from this terrible event. Let's show them that LOVE is stronger than hate!!!

If you have items you want to donate to the auction just email me at calapan@uncg.edu

We want to thank everyone for helping us to exceed our goal! Steve's family is very thankful for the outpouring of love. We will continue to accept donations and are in the process of setting up some sort of fund or nonprofit in Steve's name that will offer resources to the LGBT community. So we thank you for your continued support and stay tuned for updates.

Thank you to everyone who has donated! We are looking amazed by the outpouring of support. Given Steve' condition he will likely need much more to help with all of his personal and medical needs. He's still hanging in there, but he's got a long way to go.

Steve was a true friend and Brother in Arms. I am absolutely heartbroken over his loss. He and I worked as security contractors in Iraq in 2005 when he was seriously injured in an explosion. I will always remember his positive attitude and selfless service to his country. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. My thoughts and Prayers are with you all. Rest Easy Warrior.
