Pride Month is finally here! William Way welcomed the month-long celebration with the kick-off of our 2nd Annual Knoll Philly Pride Celebration! The festive event hosted by the fashionable folks at Knoll (formerly MillerKnoll) brought in over $1,493 in donations toward our Build the Way Capital Campaign and featured music, mingling, raffle prizes, and bingo.

On June 1st the William Way team enjoyed a lovely celebration. To quote one of our supporters, the event was held at “the most stylish office in the city (Philadelphia) with one of the best views in Center City.” Our executive Director Chris Barlett shared our vision with the crowd through a special presentation about the William Way Center and the exciting  Build the Way project. 

 

Chris also enlightened the crowd about the programs at William Way, our other events, and, of course, our Build the Way Campaign to renovate and expand the William Way Center, making it more inclusive and welcoming. And Knoll would never let guests go home hungry, so plenty of snacks and drinks were on hand to keep everyone hydrated and refreshed. 

And they made sure the room full of LGBTQ+ friends and allies were not just refreshed but entertained. The 2nd Annual Knoll Philly Pride Celebration featured such fun amusements as pride Bingo, a raffle with prizes ranging from stylish furniture, collectible books, home decor, and accessories.  Each game was not only fun but profitable–with each dollar going towards the capital campaign.
