We cannot thank you enough for having interest in supporting Buffalo Grove’s 2nd Pride Parade. The Inaugural parade on June 2, 2019 was more beautiful than we could have imagined in our wildest dreams, and it would have been nothing without the help of our sponsors.
→ 80 unique parade entries consisting of nearly 2,000 people
→ ~6-8,000 attendees, many as families with children of all ages
→ Media coverage from The TODAY Show, ABC 7, NBC, The Chicago Tribune, The Daily Herald, Chicago Reader, Teen Vogue, Windy City Times, and WCPT 820 am
→ Thousands of heart warming, positive, rainbow images and not a single protestor
→ Plenty tears of joy
BG Pride 2020
Next year’s parade is booked with the Village of Buffalo Grove for June 7, 2020 at 11 am. We have been given permission to lengthen the route to just under one mile, and will be able to accommodate at least 20 more entries. Excitingly, although the parade was completely full by April 8th, more than 20 additional groups requested entry. Entrance is likely to be even more popular this year, so there will be an application process. 2020 Sponsors will be given preference. The allowance for the parade to grow is a testament to what a positive experience it was for so many, and how smoothly it went, thanks to the help from sponsors!
The minimum donation to be listed as a 2020 parade sponsor will be $300. There will be opportunities to sponsor the smaller events that we throw between now and June 2020 as well, and those will be less of a monetary commitment. We are hoping to have all of the money raised by the end of 2019, and the earlier you confirm your sponsorship, the more opportunities we will have to share your name with the community.
With ✌🏼,♥️, 🏳️🌈, and much gratitude,
The Pinta Family
