What an honor! On Saturday, Why Marriage Matters Arizona was given the BJ Bud Community Spirit Award by Phoenix Pride at their annual gala. The BJ Bud Community Spirit Award is given each year to honor and celebrate a non-profit organization that has made a significant contribution to the metropolitan Phoenix LGBTQ community.
We are deeply honored to accept this award from Phoenix Pride – an incredible organization that has been active in the community for decades, and this year celebrated the 34th annual Pride Parade and Festival.
In addition to organizing the Pride Parade and Festival each year, Phoenix Pride not only puts on three other major events (Gala, Pageant, and the Rainbows Festival), but also manages the Phoenix Pride Community Foundation. The Foundation has raised over $500,000 since its founding in 2008 to support critical projects including a scholarship fund, help for local non-profits, and money for the One Voice Community Center.
Why Marriage Matters Arizona is excited to be able to work with Phoenix Pride, and honored to have been recognized by them.
