Benefits for Sponsors:
How will the funds be utilized in your local community and the GLBTQ ?
- Promotion of Flagstaff Diversity- Cultural diversity through awareness and education is the primary goal of Pride in the Pines. The festival has and will continue to promote this diversity through its programs, reaching out to the entire Flagstaff community.
- Use of Community Talent and Expertise- In planning and executing our festival we have gone to great lengths to seek out those individuals, organizations, and businesses from our own Flagstaff community that possess the knowledge, talent, and expertise to make our festival successful. Our use of local resources has enhanced the quality of our festival greatly and we will continue to utilize these resources into the future.
- Operations- The funding will provide the necessary cost in producing the ‘Pride in the Pines’ 17th annual festival weekend. This would include operations needs such as tenting, fencing, and staging, entertainment, special event insurance, security, marketing and outreach to Northern Arizona. Also additionally, the funding will service our ever so popular Children’s Area that provides the service of games, entertainment and activities that are provided in a safe and friendly environment.
