Observer Benefit - June 28

Hi, This is Natalie Perry, a member of the Observer Benefit committee and an active member of the Tucson gay community for over 28 years. If you've been around as long as some of us, I would like to solicit your help for about 15 minutes. It will take your physical presence on 6/28/09.

The Weekly Observer's owners/publishers, Bob Ellis and Gary Clark are "hanging on by their fingernails" to continue to publish the oldest, weekly gay publication in Arizona. I am challenging/beseeching each of you to make a physical appearance in the "Parade of History", to donate $1.00 (or more), with many other representatives of Tucson's gay community who have benefitted in their businesses/ adventures/ fundraisers from the exposure through the Observer over the past 30+ years.

I'd like former Miss Gay Tucsons and ALL other performers, Sisters of Sonora, TKO, TALL, T-Squares, Wingspan, MCC church, TIHAN, SAAF, Pride, Inc., TLGA members, current and former bar owners and bartenders, Desert Voices, Reveille, Bears of the Old Pueblo, TGSA, Saguaro Regional Rodeo
Assn, Gay Chamber, Bowling league, Cinco de Mayo kings and queens and many, many more to show up at IBT's on Sunday, June 28th . The festivities begin at 2pm, with a show at 3pm. I would like the parade of clubs, organizations, etc. to march at the end of the show (approx. 4:30pm.) Bring your banners and we'll announce your participation as you walk through and hand Bob a $1.00.

Please come to show your appreciation, respect and support by joining the "Parade of History". You are a part of the history of Gay Tucson and the Observer needs our help.

Please contact Natalie at 790-6303 and leave a message to reserve a spot. We look forward to your participation.
