Rain didn’t dampen the spirits of those who attended Spring Fling last month.
But the weather did dampen the hopes of organizers from the Atlanta Lesbian Health Initiative and Fourth Tuesday, the now merged-groups that hosted the annual fundraiser. Their goals of attracting more than 200 people and raising more than $5,000 seemed to suffer as storms on May 17 impacted attendance.
Linda Ellis, ALHI’s executive director, has since asked supporters that planned on attending but didn’t to imake a donation instead. She urged the additional support in an email two days after Spring Fling.
Thank you very much to all who attended and helped to make the Spring Fling 2009 a wonderful event. Those who attended enjoyed wonderful food and drink, listened and danced to beautiful music and made their fortunes at the gaming tables. They also were updated on the work of the Health Initiative, our 4th Tuesday chapters and the Lesbian Health Fund.
While Sunday’s event was a wonderful time for all those attended, unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate, and several folks were kept away because of the bad weather. If you’re one of those folks that didn’t make it, and you were intending to buy a ticket to Spring Fling, we would like to encourage you to please visit our website and make a donation instead. Your support will help us to continue being able to provide critical support and services to our community – we really need you.
