New Volunteer Opportunity – UK Concessions

The Pride Community Services Organization is looking for volunteers to help work a concessions stand at the UK Home Football games. We will receive 10% of the concession stand sales, so this is a great chance to help raise some funds for the PCSO.

We need 16 people helping out each game, so this is a big job, but it comes with a big reward – we could make up to $12,000 for the PCSO pride center this season!

The game days are:

  • Saturday September 5th
  • Saturday September 19th
  • Saturday September 26th
  • Saturday October 3rd
  • Thursday October 15th
  • Saturday October 31st
  • Saturday November 21st
  • Saturday November 28th

Help with just one day or all 8!

On game days, we start 4 hours before kickoff and stay till the game is over and the stand has been cleaned and counted.

Anyone interested can contact Jacob Boyd at treasurer@pcsoky.org.

Another Great Year of PRIDE!

By Chad Hundley, 2015 Lexington Pride Festival Chair

Well, what can I say, except WOW! What a grand event the 2015 Lexington Pride Festival was this year! First with Marriage Equality passing across all 50 states the day before Pride, and then leading us into the grand celebration on Saturday June 27. We had a record number of attendees estimated at 25,000 individuals in the downtown courthouse plaza. We had a little rain shower while setting up for the festival, but I must say in all eight years of having the Pride Festival downtown, that this had to have been the best weather we have ever had for our event. With an overcast of clouds and a light breeze the weather was phenomenal!
The celebration kicked off with the proclamation from Mayor Jim Gray announcing to the city of Lexington that it was “Pride Day”! We also had a couple of other special announcements consisting of the GLSO rebranding and unvailing of their new and inclusive name of the Pride Community Services Organization (PCSO) and the announcement of the PCSO Pride Center becoming an official “Safe Place”. The committee, PCSO Board and community really showed up and out for this grand occasion and I am honored to have been part of it. We also raised a record breaking $38,000+ to help the PCSO Pride Center with it’s operating expenses and help to continue all of their programs and services they offer to the whole community! Without the monies raised at Pride, we would find ourselves without a Pride Center in the state of Kentucky and would not be able to effectively help out the community like we have been able to do for 38+ years. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
I encourage you to get as involved with our community and programs as much as you can, as you will find it so fulfilling and feel like you are having an active part in all of our causes! With that being said, I want to invite any and all who wish to be a part of this exciting committee to come out for the annual Pride Festival committee elections on Thursday, August 27, 2015 at 6:30 pm at the PCSO Pride Center located at 389 Waller Avenue, Suite #100, Lexington, KY 40504. For those who volunteered with the PCSO and Pride Festival as official volunteers, we invite you to come earlier that evening at 5 pm for a Volunteer Appreciation Cookout there at the same location! It takes an army to lead this revolution and I am so thankful that you all entrusted me to help lead this charge this year! Thank You and Hope to see you at the Elections!
