BAAAAH-RAM-EWE - WE WANT YOU... TO VOLUNTEER FOR THE APIQWTC 2015 LUNAR NEW YEAR BANQUET - YEAR OF THE SHEEP!!!

Every spring, a small, dedicated group puts on APIQWTC's biggest party and fundraiser of the year. Without the help of our awesome Banquet volunteers, APIQWTC would not be able to provide scholarships for the up-and-coming leaders of our community, support other LGBTQ groups in the Bay, host social events and meet-ups, and sponsor like-minded causes that advance our rights and visibility.

By volunteering for just an hour or two during the Banquet, you can help make the Banquet more fabulous and successful.

Do you have time to help out with the entertainment program, silent auction, raffle, registration, etc.? We would love to hear from you and we will work with whatever interests and time you can offer during the event.

Please contact Joanne at joanne at apiqwtc dot org with your availability.

The 2014 Banquet needs............

VOLUNTEERS!!!

Every year, a small group of dedicated peeps helps make the Banquet bigger and more fabulous. This year of the horsey horse, the group is especially small and we could use a few more volunteers.

Our next meeting is coming up and we would very much like to see you. If you only have time to help out the day of the Banquet, we'd also love to hear from you. Here are the details:

Next Meeting:

Day: Wednesday, February 12th
Time: 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Location: near downtown Oakland (RSVP with Joanne at joanne AT apiqwtc DOT org for the exact location)

If you are interested in volunteering the day of the Banquet, please also email Joanne.

Love,

The Banquet Committee

COST: $10 for each program, to cover cost of the theater rental.
It has been almost a year since Christopher Lee took his life. We ask you to join us, not in mourning, but to celebrate his life and the lasting legacy of his work in the intimate setting of the New Parkway Theater.

In addition to screening Christopher’s films, The New Parkway has food, drink, family, and friends. Both programs will include an invitation to bear witness to how you were touched by Christopher, as a person and/or an artist.

Community Gathering: 12:00 – 4:45 PM
This is a community building space, so if you have flyers, brochures, or other materials related to supporting the health, resilience, art and culture of transgender people and their families, please bring it with you. We’ll have plenty of table space to share resources.

Childcare
Many of us who will be attending are parents. We will have childcare available upstairs in the New Parkway provided by several young adults in our community. Childcare will be sliding scale (about $10/per child)- we just want to make sure to pay our childcare providers. Please email Maya at or call or text (510) 381-0876 to RSVP re childcare.
