2013 Fundraiser/Friendraiser
Mar 24 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
2013 Fundraiser/Friendraiser @ Robin and Jason's Historic Forest Park Home | Springfield | Massachusetts | United States

Come out to support this year’s expanded Springfield Pride event lineup! Light refreshments and snacks will be served, there will be performances by spoken word artists and drag queens from the Imperial Court, and you might even get to see a preview for the opening night film, This Is Who We Are! All are welcome, but a donation of $20 (or more if you can afford it) is encouraged.

IMPORTANT: Our home is at the corner of Magnolia and Pineywoods, and our front door actually faces Pineywoods. If you’re using a GPS, it’ll get you close, but will likely point to our neighbor’s house. Our house is yellow/tan with white and black trim, and the house number (112) is prominent on the front porch.
