To our valuable sponsors and supporters,
This past June, Indivisible Aurora held the first ever Pride Parade in the Chicago suburbs thanks to generous sponsors like you. The response was rousing. The reviews were incredible. We saw thousands of participants and spectators turn Aurora into a boisterous and loving sea of rainbow colors. It was a brilliant, family-friendly event.
In 2019 we are building on that loving energy of the 2018 Parade. Our intention is to expand the celebration to a three day Pride Festival. The goal of the festival is “promoting the inclusion and support of LGBTQ+ Aurorans through art, entertainment, and conversation.” So it’s time to save the date for Friday, June 7th through Sunday, June 9th!
Our tentative schedule is as follows:
Kickoff - Dinner, Auction, and Keynote (PM)
5k Rainbow Run/1 Mile Fun Run/Walk (AM)
Out and About Downtown (PM)
Out and About Marketplace (PM)
Indivisible Aurora Pride Parade (AM)
Closing Event (PM)
It’s ambitious! We know. You powered the 2018 event and we need your help to power the 2019 event as well!
Activities will remain family friendly, of course. And we invite all members of the LGBTQ+ community, their loved ones, and their allies to attend. There will be art, speakers, poetry, music, vendors,running, and… oh yes… a larger parade! Your donation to this cause is so much appreciated. Every donation goes toward benefiting the 2019 Aurora Pride Festival and your support encourages the patronship of downtown Aurora’s restaurants and shopping during this fantastic weekend!
With peace and love,
Executive Director of Indivisible Aurora
