Hey hey Greenpointers! Have you got your bells on yet? If not, you better do it soon because Williamsburg’s first ever Gay Pride Festival is popping this Saturday, June 20th, and trust us you’re not going to want to miss this event!
A couple of weeks back we let you all know many people in the hood thought it was high time North Brooklyn had their own gay affair to remember. A who’s who of list of awesome local businesses have stepped up to the plate and are hard at work behind the scenes to make this Saturday’s event a raging success.
But as a media sponsor of the North Brooklyn’s Gay Pride Festival, we here at Greenpointers would be remiss if we didn’t let our kind readers know, this event is in desperate need of our help.
Right now, at this very moment, festival organizers are on the hunt for volunteers. Whether you are straight or gay, lesbian or asexual, it doesn’t matter. All they need are kind souls willing to spare a few hours to help make Saturday’s festival a success.
As of now event organizers are looking for help in the following areas:
Setting up and breaking down tables before and after the event
Be a point person during the festival and help answer questions
Help selling various merchandise
If you have a free set of hands and are willing to donate a few hours to make this an insanely awesome event, organizers would love to hear from you.
