WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Adam Foundation (AF) has already had a super 2014 as it has had a number of successful fundraisers and events.

“Bare” and “When Pigs Fly” performances at Theatre Alliance were sold out and were partially funded by the foundation’s grants.

In February, the Adam Foundation was selected as the highlighted community group by Wake Forest University’s LGBTQ Center and the school’s Institute for Public Engagement.

There continues to be Martini Nights and Adam Nights Out that help to support the work of the foundation. Bars and restaurants contribute a portion of the bill back to AF. The next night out event is at Señor Bravo, 241 Marshall St. S., on March 27, 6 p.m.

AF is seeking input from the community for their Festival Survey online. They are interested in suggestions, complaints and resources regarding their fall festival. To join in, visit surveymonkey.com/s/CX9CRDH.

A grant orientation meeting will be held on March 24, 6 p.m., at New Winston Museum, 713 Marshall St. S. This is open to anyone who seeks to learn more about how to participate in the application process. More information is available online.

The foundation is also supportive of other organizations in the Triad. They are encouraging the community to attend AIDS Care Service’s Red Ribbon Runway on March 22, 8 p.m., at Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, 251 Spruce St. N., and Positive Wellness Alliance’s High Tea and Fashion Show on March 23, 3 p.m., at Edward C Smith Civic Center Ballroom, 217 S. Main St., Lexington, N.C. Both are fundraisers. Visit their website for more information as well as tickets.
