The 19th Annual Erie Gay News Family Pride Picnic, held Saturday, June 11 at the Rotary Pavilion was a great success! This year, Pride events are being coordinated by the Pride Planning committee, which is a coalition of groups and individuals.

About 290 people enjoyed a day of friends, food and fun. We also collected 100 pounds of food and $10 for the Second Harvest Food Bank of NW PA. Thanks so much for everyone’s generosity!

We are deeply grateful for our generous donors, who help make Pride possible. This year’s donors:
