connected5

In keeping with the interconnectivity of our 2016 theme, PrideDay is certainly a collaboration of efforts, and we need to thank:

 

To Our Sponsors for without their financial support we couldn’t put on a fabulous PrideDay:  12th Street Gym, Aramark, Andre Richards Salon, Angry Orchard, AT&T, Barefoot Wine, BikeStop, Blue Moon, Boxers, Campbell Soup Company, Capital One, Comcast, Coors, Discover Financial, FIAT, Funky Junk Wipes, Hardrock Café, Hilton Garden Inn, ICANDY, Lincoln Financial, Knock, More Thank Just Ice Cream, Optimal Sport Health Club, PECO, Penn Medicine, Philadelphia Gay News, Red Bull, Sonesta Philadelphia, Space & Company, Spruce Street Video, Stoli, Sugar House Casino, Sundance Vacations, TABU, Tavern on Broad, Tavern on Camac, TD Bank, TMobile, UBAR, Voyeur, Walgreens, Woody’s, Yuengling & Zip Car.

 Our Venue, the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing, is the nicest on the east coast and maybe in the nation.   Thank you, Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, for letting us celebrate at Penn’s Landing Great Plaza. Thank you Independence Park for letting us have our reviewing stand on the most historic area in the country.

 City of Philadelphia:  Manager Directors office for the parade permits, special event permits, the block party permits, Mayor’s office of LGBT Affairs for proclamations, citations, and the 6th District police and traffic police for making sure our parade participants get to the festival safe.   It was extra sensitive as our event was immediately post Orlando, but the PPD was out in force.  Thank you Jazelle Jones, Robert Allen, Michele Sabb, Andrew McDougal, Nellie Fitzpatrick.

 The other companies that help make PrideDay happen:  Casswood Insurance, Golf Cart Services, Bette Bounces, Left of Center Productions, Party Center Rentals, National Fence Rentals, Pottie Queen, City Engraving, Delaware River Waterfront Corp.
