Today we’d like to point you in the direction of an awesome (and important) fundraiser coming up next month that Égalité, the Publicis Groupe interagency LGBT employee resource group is taking part in.“But why should I keep reading about an event not happening until October?” you might be asking. That’s easy! All interested parties need to sign up by the end of next Wednesday (more details on that below). Plus – bowling! So, yeah.
The event, appropriately titled “Up Our Alley,” is a bowl-a-thon that benefits the ongoing work of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. There is no fee to join and participants are asked to reach a fundraising goal of $500, and many exceed it! After two months of fundraising, the event culminates in an evening of bowling and partying at Bowlmor Lanes in Union Square.
ABOUT UP OUR ALLEY
In its 13 year history, Up Our Alley has raised more than $1.2 million for seven vital programs of The Actors Fund as well as men, women and children around the country struggling with HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses. Together, with your help, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS can continue to provide these individuals with the medical services, nutritious food and safe housing they need and deserve.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
The event will take place at 6:30pm on Tuesday, October 23rd at Bowlmor Lanes in Union Square. There will be a bunch of teams from LGBT employee resource groups from different advertising agencies so it’ll be a great opportunity for some healthy competition amongst our industry colleagues.
If you’re interested in joining our team, please email here by end of day on Wednesday, August 29th. If you’d like to be placed on a specific team with a friend or colleague, please make note of that in your email and we will do our best to make sure you’re set.
