Pride Premiere gets the Pride parties started with Orlando fundraiser
Last week, the Vancouver Pride Society and TD Bank Group teamed up to present Pride Premiere, a downtown kickoff to Pride festivities, on July 21 at Celebrities Nightclub.
Drag queen extraordinaire Carlotta Gurl MCed and sang at the event while TD Bank Group senior vice-president Mauro Manzi hosted. Manzi said that TD Bank Group now sponsors over 50 Pride festivals across North America, in addition to working over 100 LGBT community organizations, and has been the presenting sponsor for Vancouver Pride for the past six years.
Proceeds from the event went to the OneOrlando Fund, which helps survivors of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida.
A total of $950 was raised from the event.
