The theme of the event is “Rain on Me” like the Lady Gaga song because the event aims to provide education, encourage the celebration of pride, and most of all, RAISE MONEY! The event will kick off with an initial fundraising push led by a board member from Campus Pride and our moderator Sander Jennings, a great ally and the proud big brother of Jazz Jennings. After the introductions, the event will consist of a panel discussing inclusion on college campuses, guest speaker Hope Giselle talking about diversity, and some SURPRISE guest performances.
Where will all donations go?
All proceeds from the event and fundraising push’s before the event will benefit Campus Pride, which helps create a safer college environment for the LGBTQA+ community. The event is intentionally being held on the final day of giving day to help campus pride succeed in getting the most $10 donations to win an extra $10,000 grant. If you would like to help now, the donations are already open.
