Foundation’s summer events heat up

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Adam Foundation has announced that its popular summer “8 in 8” events are returning to the Triad over the next few months.

Hosts are being solicited to hold fundraising events to benefit the foundation. The events are held to honor the legacy and affect the future for beneficiaries of the Adam Foundation and support a wide range of local LGBT projects through the foundation’s grant giving.

The series began in 1990 when a group of friends gathered to raise emergency funds for the Forsyth County AIDS Task Force.

Individuals and businesses who host an event can do so in whatever theme it so chooses, as long as the number eight is incorporated within its name and/or focus.

Assistance with foundation display materials, special speakers, video presentations, invitations, thank you cards and envelopes and more is provided by the foundation. Also, public relations opportunities are provided. Events can be whatever size the hosts deem plausible, whether they are public or private. They can also be fancy or funky, dressy or casual, beer or champagne — it’s all up to the soiree planner. The foundation said to “pass the hat to friends, match a percentage of sales or charge admission to strangers.” Attendees are given the opportunity to learn more about the work of the Adam Foundation and its history.

Additional information and forms are available online.
