Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend has a new sponsor. The largest lesbian event in the nation has brought in the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights organization, as a full sponsor for the upcoming 23rd Anniversary of the event being held from 3 April to 7 April 2013 in Palm Springs, CA.
Mariah Hanson, the founder and promoter of Club Skirts presents The Dinah, embraced the ‘party with a purpose’ philosophy two years ago, and has continuously supported LGBT rights since then. Despite having made huge strides in the field of LGBT rights, the work continues and this year, Hanson will be pushing efforts to raise awareness about marriage and equality rights.
The HCR will be sponsoring and hosting the Her HRC program, a special soiree during the weekend that will give Dinah goers a chance to meet, mingle, network and celebrate with their favorite celebrities and “celesbians” as well as getting involved with the HRC team that will be there. The HRC will also be there with their own information kiosk and offering literature to attendees about the efforts to gain equality for LGBT Americans.
Additionally, Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend will be hosting their first ever world-class Celebrity Poker Tournament on Saturday night with the proceeds going to the HRC, and the participants will have a chance to join some of the hottest celebrity guests for a fun night of poker and charity.
There is more, of course. “Club Skirts involvement with HRC extends beyond the actual Dinah Shore Weekend. Effective immediately, Club Skirts has generously donated an exclusive VIP package valued at $2500 to be raffled off at all Her HRC events around the country leading up to the Dinah.”
Hanson stated “I am proud to name HRC as the charity we showcase at The Dinah 2013. Their work in securing our civil rights is as always to be applauded. I look forward to helping them gain more visibility with our unique Dinah demographic. HRC was open to creating visibility in a fun way. HRC gift items will be thrown from the stage during the weekend and we are creating a high profile celebrity poker tournament on Saturday night, with all proceeds going to HRC.”
Margot Rosen, Director of Membership Outreach at HRC, said “HRC is proud to come on board as a sponsor for the 2013 Club Skirts Dinah Shore weekend. While thousands of women gather to celebrate, it’s crucial that we remember the importance of being engaged politically as LGBT Americans fight for full equality across the United States. To this effect, HRC will have a presence aimed at engaging the Dinah audience with our organization and our goals.”
The road to Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend is always paved with good intentions!
Socially responsible, The Dinah sees to it that this “consciousness” permeates everything it does year after year. Stepping up its efforts with increasing effectiveness and productivity, its commitment to “give back” and advance goodwill has successfully translated into community activism, famously partnering with a variety of activist associations and charity organizations such as GLAAD, NOH8, Love is Louder, Equality California, and The Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center among others.
As the biggest All-Girl Party in the world, The Dinah also prides itself in giving back to the LGBT community remaining faithful to its “party with a purpose” theme to remind everyone that while we have made a lot of strides, we’re still fighting for our rights!
