SMC 2022 Event Sponsorship

Greetings,

The San Mateo County (SMC) PRIDE Initiative is excited to welcome you to the 10th Annual San Mateo County LGBTQ+ Pride Celebration -Still Here, Still Proud! CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF PRIDE ON THE PENINSULA! This year, the celebration will be on Saturday, June 11, 2022, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at San Mateo Central Park.

The SMC PRIDE Initiative is composed of a passionate group of folks who were brought together to foster a welcoming environment for the LGBTQIA+ communities living and working in San Mateo County. It has been 11 years since the SMC PRIDE Initiative marched in the San Francisco Pride Parade; it was inspirational. This empowering experience was instrumental in the vision and planning for San Mateo County’s own commemoration 10 years ago. Of course, the SMC PRIDE Initiative couldn’t put together this event without partners and collaborators like San Mateo Parks & Recreation, the San Mateo County Pride Center, the San Mateo County LGBTQ+ Commission, San Mateo County Office of Diversity and Equity, multiple community partners and you!

 

We invite you to become a sponsor. Your contribution helps us to create an amazing and safe environment for the diverse members of our community.  Help create the stories for a new generation of LGBTQIA+ members in San Mateo County. Sponsorship funds cover the cost of the venue, food, advertising, marketing, entertainment, and other event activities. The past two years, we persevered through the dreadful restraints of the COVID-19 pandemic and connected remotely for Pride. We gathered for a virtual Pride Celebration and had approximately 1,000 viewers joining us remotely and previous in-person celebrations have welcomed over 800 community members. Now as we work on gathering in person, we hope to get your help to bring the Pride back into the Pride Celebration for our LGBTQIA+ San Mateo County community. With even greater support and wider advertising and marketing efforts, we could bring a safe and interactive event to the community! Review the following pages to find the varying levels of sponsorship with corresponding recognition and exposure. This is a great opportunity to support the LGBTQIA+ community and raise the public’s awareness of your organization’s mission and its effort to support diversity and inclusion. We welcome and appreciate support at any level!

Any questions please reach out to Dana TherActivist Johnson (they/ them) at theractivist@gmail.com

This event is being coordinated by the SMC PRIDE Initiative in collaboration with multiple community partners. The SMC PRIDE Initiative is led by SMC Behavioral Health & Recovery Services (BHRS)'s Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) and is partially funded through the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA).
