SoulFire Wheelin' for Project Eden Raffle
SoulFire DMC is partnering with Project Eden to raise money for the Hayward, CA Gay Prom 2012.
The grand prize for our raffle is a 32-inch flat screen TV. There will also be other great prizes as a part of the raffle, including motorcycle helmets, Harley Davidson T-shirts, dinner tickets at bay area restaurants, SWAG, and a motorcycle ride during the San Francisco Dyke March.
Project Eden provides support services to local schools, the probation department and to families. Under Horizon Services Incorporated (HCI) leadership Project Eden began services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and questioning youth, providing a place where these youth are able feel safe and build self-confidence. In 1995 they sponsored their first Gay Prom for youth who may not be welcome at their own school proms and where they could experience an alcohol/drug-free social event. In June of 2009 Project Eden hosted the prom for the 14th year. Each year approximately 400 youth participate. While most are from the San Francisco Bay Area, youth have come from as far away as Alaska and London, England specifically to attend the prom. Each year community volunteers provide donations and chaperone support to make this happen. Project Eden is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.
