The 2nd Annual Rainbow Ball At 1881 Event Hall In Spartanburg SC

May 2, 2020 - 7:00PM to 11:00PM EST

The Spartanburg chapter of PFLAG is hosting the Uplift Outreach Center this year as they await their 501c3 status. The organizations are planning the 2nd Annual Rainbow Ball. The fundraiser is the center’s largest source of funding and an integral part of Uplift’s continued growth.

The Rainbow Ball is a masquerade gala that will create a space where donors can socialize and support a cause that is very important to Spartanburg and the entire Upstate.

The 2nd Annual Rainbow Ball is scheduled for Saturday, May 2nd at the 1881 Event Hall (formerly Summit Pointe). Jamarcus Gaston and the Synergy Twins will be returning as honorary emcee and primary entertainment. The event will also feature a DJ, cash bar and heavy hors d'oeuvre.

Last year’s Rainbow Ball raised over $13,000 and was essential in the launch and opening of the youth LGBTQ+ center in September 2019. This year’s goal of $25,000 will provide future programming, snacks, beverages, and rent to allow the center to continue and grow.

The center runs solely on donations and volunteers and is housed within the Fernwood Baptist Church at Hillcrest. The vision for the center is to eventually have its own facilities where it may provide space for additional services including mental health, STD and HIV testing, medical screenings and expanded programming for LGBTQ+ youth and adults.

Tickets are available for the 2nd Annual Rainbow Ball! Join us on Saturday, May 2nd to support the Uplift Outreach Center!
