Rainbow Cafe LGBTQ Youth Center raises $15,000 with Virtual Gala
The Rainbow Cafe LGBTQ Youth Center said it raised more than $15,000 during their Virtual Gala on Saturday, Oct. 2.
The center said in Facebook post that with this fundraiser, they were about 50% of the way to a down payment on a permanent location.
The center currently rents space in a small retail building in Carbondale.
“We want to ensure that we are financially set before making this big leap,” the center said. “We will continue to build our down payment fund over the next year (or sooner if possible).”
This was the second year the center held a virtual gala because of COVID-19 concerns.
