SHOP TILL YOU DROP
Brisbane Pride Festival Assoc. Is proud to announce our launch of a new and exciting event that will prove to be an exciting all inclusive day for everyone who is part of our community, their friends, family and supporters.
On December 3rd, 2011. Brisbane Pride Festival Assoc is teaming up with over twenty shops in the valley area to create the first ever Brisbane Pride Festival “Shop Till You Drop”
On this day these shops will donate either $5 or 5% of each sale to raise funds, helping Brisbane Pride Festival to fight the battle to increase mental wellness within the community.
The day will start at The Wickham Hotel with a free sausage sizzle breakfast and charity auction to buy a hot guy or girl to carry your shopping bags. Proceeds from the boys auction are split between Brisbane Pride and Bootco/Bears and proceeds from the Girlz auction are split between Brisbane Pride and LHAG, Lesbian Health Action Group, a much needed group that has no funding at all and needs help to assist the girlz in our community.
Shopping will start at 11 and there will be entertainment throughout the day on the Valley streets through personalities and roaming performers.
This is a day where everyone who has Christmas shopping to do should come out in force, and dressed in rainbow Christmas theme. With shops covering an area from Brunswick to James streets and including Wickham, Anne and the Homemaker centre there is something for everyone and its time to get out in the daylight and show the strength and numbers of our community.
Brisbane Pride Festival in conjunction with The Wickham Hotel and Big Gay Day is giving two lucky members the chance to win a double VIP pass to Big Gay Day this year. That’s right this Sunday 11th March you could not only be having ball at Big Gay Day, but could be doing it in the VIP area.
