National Multifamily Management Company Shows Support for the LGBTQ+ Community as a Sponsor of Multiple PRIDE Events Across Three Major Cities
Drucker + Falk (DF), one of the nation’s most prominent multifamily management companies, announced its sponsorship of three different events for Pride Month in 2022. The LGBTQ+ focused events took place in three major cities within DF’s national management portfolio. Stonewall Columbus Pride 2022 in Columbus, Ohio; Out! Raleigh Pride 2022 in Raleigh, North Carolina; and Hampton Roads PrideFest in Norfolk, Virginia all took place in June.
The Stonewall Columbus Pride Festival and March welcomed over 700,000 visitors to Columbus and the Central Ohio region the weekend of June 17th and 18th for their annual event. The weekend represented the organization’s largest annual fundraiser that secures the needed funds to support Stonewall’s community programs and annual operations. DF is proud to be an Ally Sponsor for 2022 and had representatives from the company in attendance over the course of the celebratory weekend.
Celebrating its 10 year anniversary, Out! Raleigh Pride 2022 returned to an in-person event on June 25th in downtown Raleigh. Drucker + Falk is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor for 2022 and was pleased to have representation from all levels of the organization in attendance to further show the company’s support. The family-friendly event offers live entertainment, local vendors and artists, food, a KidsZone, a beer garden – and is free to attend. The event raises the necessary funds to support the LGBT Center of Raleigh and all of its 20+ community programs.
Also on June 25, 2022, Hampton Roads Pride presented their annual PrideFest event to celebrate the diversity of their community and their allies on the East Coast. Hampton Roads PrideFest is open to the public and provides the opportunity for attendees to unify through the celebration of inclusion and equality. PrideFest is one of the largest festivals in the Mid-Atlantic – and one of the largest in general in Hampton Roads – drawing 40,000 LGBTQ Community members to Town Point Park in Norfolk, Virginia each year. DF team members from surrounding communities and the company’s Corporate Headquarters showed their support through attendance at this event as well.
“At Drucker + Falk, we believe that every member of our team, every partner, and every resident we support is unique – and we welcome and celebrate diversity. Together, we Aim Higher to create inclusive workplaces and communities where everyone feels safe to share their authentic thoughts, experiences, and preferences with others. The company is proud to further express this belief through the sponsorship of several events for 2022 and will continue to look for opportunities to promote inclusion and show support for the LGBTQ+ community,” said J. Guy Buck, Chief Financial Officer for Drucker + Falk.
