Description

The Gay Community Endowment Fund of Akron Community Foundation invites local residents and community leaders to its annual celebration, “exhALE: Advancing Lived Equality,” on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019.

This signature event celebrates the Gay Community Endowment Fund’s impact in the community and showcases its most recent grant recipients. Proceeds support the GCEF Scholarship Fund, which awards academic scholarships to LGBTQ+ and allied students in Greater Akron. 

The event will begin at 5 p.m. at the Akron Civic Theatre and will feature a performance by the North Coast Men’s Chorus Coastliners. In addition, the fund will announce the recipient of its 2019 Paul Daum Award, which honors individuals who have demonstrated a significant commitment to LGBTQ+ causes and the Greater Akron community at large.

Sponsorship opportunities for the event range from $250 to $1,000 and include complimentary tickets to the event, among other benefits. For more information about becoming a sponsor, visit www.akroncf.org/GCEFsponsors or contact Gayle Wilson at 330-436-5614 or gwilson@akroncf.org.
