PRIDE & JOY is about many things to all of us at RISE, our company, our talent and our fans. Above all else, it is about making an event filled with love, centered in inclusion and to make a positive impact in the Professional Wrestling and LGBTQ Communities.
We knew at the onset of PRIDE & JOY that part of the event would be to raise funds for an organization with a profound footprint in the LGBTQ Community. We considered many options, nonprofit organizations global, national and local. We have elected to stay local to our home base community, and we will be raising funds and awareness for Center on Halstead, right here in the heart of Chicago’s Lakeview Neighborhood.
Center on Halsted is the Midwest’s most comprehensive community center dedicated to advancing community and securing the health and well-being of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) people of Chicagoland. More than 1,000 community members visit the Center every day.
For more information on Center on Halstead, please visit their website centeronhalstead.org.
For the month of June, 100% of profits from RISE T-Shirts sales will be donated to Center on Halstead. This is not only applied to the RISE Pride Logo T-Shirt. Any and all T-Shirt profits for June from our store on Pro Wrestling Tees will be donated. Additionally, all future sales beyond June of the RISE Pride Logo T-Shirt will be continually donated to Center on Halstead.
The RISE Pro Wrestling Tees Store can be found HERE. The RISE Pride Logo T-Shirt will also be available to buy at PRIDE & JOY June 30 in limited quantities. Ordering in advance is strongly encouraged.
In addition, we will also be donating a portion of iPPV Sales from the LIVE Steam of PRIDE & JOY on FITE to Center on Halstead. To purchase the LIVE Stream with Unlimited VOD Replays, you can do so for $9.99 HERE.
June 30 will be an amazing day. After the Pride Parade at 12 PM, join us for PRIDE & JOY at 5 PM at Chicago’s Logan Square Auditorium!
Tickets are still available HERE.
