Folsom Street Events Donates Largest Check to Local and National Charities
Check, Agency Clears $5.2 Million Mark for its 30-Year Giving History
The Board of Directors of Folsom Street Events announced charitable giving in
the amount of $358,779 today.
Rae Goldman, Board President, said, "2013 was a good year for Folsom Street
Events and our charities. We are enormously grateful to our sponsors,
beverage partners, and the leather/fetish community for the ongoing support.
Given the state of the economy, we feel that this check represents a major milestone in our 30 year giving history."
2013 Folsom Street Fair
The entire Folsom Street Events team of
over 1300 volunteers, board members, staff
and sponsors want to express their thanks
to all those who made
the 2013 Folsom Street Fair, our 30th, such a total success.
Thanks as well to all those who attended any of the other official events:
RECON's Full Fetish,
DEVIANTS, or any of the
SF Leather Week events.
The beautiful weather brought out
gregarious throngs of fair goers right on schedule. Dressed
in leather harneses, or galloping with edwardian carriages
and the most fabulous of horses, or in latex and rubber, or in
sequins, beads and feathers, or swinging suspended on hooks, or
dancing in the cage,
or with the skimpiest of outfits, or with nothing
at all we came together.
Thanks for donating, thanks for enjoying. Funds collected at the gates go
to this year's beneficiaries.
We will be back again next year, Sunday, September 21, 2014.
Please note: Due to a lack of hotel rooms because of an Oracle event, the 2014 fair
will not be held on the last Sunday in September, but on the previous Sunday.
