Thank you to everyone who supported the Pride Bus. With your help, GayRVA raised over $800 to go towards Gay Pride Virginia’s scholarship fund. Thank you to Babes, Barcode, Godfrey’s and Nations for their generosity.
In addition to waiving cover to their venues, these businesses also provided financial support to help cover the overhead expenses of the evening’s transportation. A special thank you to Nations who doubled their original contribution towards the bus.
GayRVA and these establishments were able to offer safe transportation to almost 120 people in hopes of creating unity in Richmond’s nightlife scene.
In an effort to make this a positive experience for all and to improve the bus for next year, we are open to feedback. Send comments directly to email@example.com. Thank you to those that have already responded via e-mail and Facebook.
We apologize to our passengers if they experienced longer wait times than promised along the bus route. We hope that you were able to celebrate Pride and we are looking into ways to make the route more efficient next year.
We spoke to the owners of Nations and they extend an apology to patrons that were turned away during the Pride event after their venue reached capacity regulated by the Fire Marshall. They apologize for this inconvenience and have offered to follow through with their commitment.
Nations is waiving cover this Friday or Saturday night to passengers of the Pride Bus. Present a copy of your confirmation and they will honor free cover for one evening. You can retrieve your confirmation at http://www.eventbrite.com/mytickets.
If you paid cash the day of the festival or are having trouble accessing your confirmation, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday at noon with the name you registered.
