Five Cities 1st Pride Celebration!

5 Cities Hope is a nonprofit organization that started in 2017. Growing up in the Five Cities area, our board members noticed the distinct lack of LGBTQIA+ resources in the area, so we decided to make a change.
Today, 5 Cities Hope has grown into a welcoming and inclusive family that serves children, teens, adults, and seniors who are apart of the LGBTQIA+ community. Not only do we host bonfires, movie nights, and pizza nights, but we also do community outreach by traveling to local middle schools and high schools to reach out to LGBTQIA+ youth that may be at risk or struggling to find a support system. 5 Cities Hope has created and fostered a support system that stretches throughout neighboring cities and towns.
Currently, our goal is to host the first Pride Celebration in the Five Cities, which will include a resource fair, youth lounge, and local entertainment. Pride will be organzied at Heritage Square park in Old Arroyo Grande, June 1st 2019! We are still a grassroots organization and to this day, we have been funded solely by donations from our community.  Please help us make this dream a reality and bring the first Pride celebration to the Five Cities.

Some of our expenses include
Park fees, permit and security
Printing and Marketing
Event supplies (banners, decorations, shade canopies, portable toilets, speaker rentals, extension cords, chairs/table rental)
Event promotional merchandise (t-shirts and flags)
Volunteer ID lanyards, shirts and appreciation (food and food for youth volunteers)

Any additional money raised will go towards making pride bigger and better. Thank you so much
