SPONSOR

PARTNER WITH AKRON PRIDE

On Saturday, August 26, 2017, Akron will hold its first official Akron Pride Festival.  This large-scale, outdoor event will highlight the best in local and national entertainment, attracting over 7,000 attendees from Akron and the surrounding areas.  Pride festivals foster community pride and strengthen relationships by supporting a greater awareness of the uniqueness and similarities of community members.  This event will encourage community members to expand their understanding of neighbors and facilitate a higher level of community collaboration.  

The day will kick off with an Equality March from Highland Square to the event's location - Hardesty Park.  Attendees will enjoy music, games, food vendors, merchandise retailers, and network with numerous community organizations including social groups, churches, and health and wellness groups to name a few.  Ten percent net proceeds will benefit LGBTQ community members through grants and/or scholarships.  Sponsorship with Akron Pride will greatly promote your business within the LGBTQ and allied community.  Your partnership will help build awareness of your business and demonstrate that your business supports all members of the larger community. There is no better way to emphasize your commitment to supporting the LGBTQ community than through sponsorship of Akron Pride.

The Akron Pride Festival provides an opportunity for you to reinforce your brand in a significant media market.  Statistics show that gay and lesbian community members are loyal customers who prefer to purchase from companies that advertise and support diversity, equality, and LGBTQ community causes.  Per Bloomberg.com in 2016: "The combined buying power of U.S. lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender adults rose about 3.7 percent to $917 billion last year, rivaling the disposable income of other American minority groups..." 

Because we value your support, Pride sponsorship opportunities and benefits vary.  If you have a suggestion for a sponsorship that is not listed below, please let us know at info@canapi.org.  Don't miss becoming an Akron Pride sponsor today! 

**Deadline for inclusion in print material is July 15th, 2017
