FASHION WALK EXAMPLE
CHARITY DRAWING FUNDRAISER
Deadline to enter: July 2nd, 12 PM PDT
As you may know from our previous virtual events, we typically choose one charity per event to raise money for, in order to highlight a certain issue. For this event, we'd like for you to choose any local LGBTQA+ charity to donate to! Many studies show that providing mutual aid to local organizations tend to go further than donating to large national organizations, and we'd like to encourage you to choose causes that are particularly important to you.
We're also offering a non-monetary option to enter the drawing - simply submit a fashion walk entry and then fill out the form below to enter!
Prizes generously donated by:
There are two ways you can enter the drawing:
(1) Make a non-transferable/non-refundable donation (any amount) to a local LGBTQA+ focused charity of your choice and send us an image of the receipt. You may donate as much as you want, but we will only issue one entry for any donated amount.
(2) Enter the fashion walk! Please make sure the email address you are using is the same as the one you used to submit your fashion walk entry so that we can verify your submission.
The deadline to submit entries is July 2nd, 12 PM PDT. Winners will be chosen via random drawing. We will be announcing our randomly selected winners after the fashion walk so stick around!
Please note that the drawing is only open to United States residents 18 years or older. It is not open to residents of Alabama, Hawaii, Kansas, New Jersey, and Utah, in compliance with applicable state laws.
