Boys of Summer Giving Back to the Community Nov 8, 2017
by: Steve McCann, Press Release
Philadelphia, PA - This week Boys of Summer, a PhillyGayCalendar event, presented a check to the Morris Home, for the amount of $788.63 – proceeds from the Boys of Hallow 's Eve event. This is on the tail of their recent donation of $1,021.73 to Home for Hope.
In addition to growing the team to include Matt Rowe and Calvin Joshua, Boys of Summer has recently restructured its organization to be able to give more back to the community and more importantly, smaller lesser known charities.
"Over this past year, we have been working hard to make several changes to the overall Boys of Summer party." said Matt Rowe, event co-producer, "One of these changes, honestly my favorite, is turning BOS into a charity event to give back to the LGBT community. The other weekend, we threw our first POP Party (Party On Purpose). With each POP party, half of the cover charge is donated directly to a local LGBT organization. There are many organizations that are doing so much good for the LGBT community right here in Philadelphia. We thought it was important, especially in today 's world, to shed some love and bring a spotlight to other organizations that are lesser known.”
“Everyone knows the larger charity organizations in Philly,” said Steve McCann, Executive Director of PhillyGayCalendar, “and while they are amazing for our community, we wanted to reach out to the smaller, often forgotten organizations that desperately need funding”
