FOLSOM STREET EVENTS® DONATES IMPRESSIVE CHECK TO LOCAL AND NATIONAL CHARITIES
With $324,030 Check, Agency Clears $4.9 Million Mark for its 29-Year Giving History

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - November 13, 2012 - The Board of Directors of Folsom Street Events announced charitable giving in the amount of $324,030 today. Jacob Richards, Board President, says, “2012 was a good year for Folsom Street Events and our charities. We are enormously grateful to our sponsors, beneficiaries, beverage partners, and the leather/fetish community for the ongoing support. Given the depressed economy, we feel that this check is a total success.”

According to Demetri Moshoyannis, Executive Director, “The size of our check proves the potency and spirit of the leather/fetish community. The vast share of the check will support our 17 Major and Supporting Beneficiaries, including AIDS Legal Referral Panel, Breast Cancer Emergency Fund, Frameline, Mission Neighborhood Health Center, Project Open Hand, SF LGBT Community Center, Transgender Law Center, and others. Combined, we are supporting over 70 great charities in San Francisco and around the U.S.A. We feel particularly proud of our fundraising efforts, and we are looking forward to a huge blowout for our XXX celebration for the 30TH Folsom Street Fair.”
