2009 Seattle PrideFeast
by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Seattle PrideFeast, now in its second year, took place June 26 at several participating restaurants in Seattle. PrideFeast is a one-day fundraising event, organized by The Pride Project, where local restaurants donate a portion of their earnings to raise money for Gay City Health Project, Seattle Counseling Services, and The Pride Project - all three are local non-profit organizations for the Seattle LGBT community.

"PrideFeast is important because the money earned helps fund the vital services our beneficiaries provide for the community," said event organizer Bill Wilson.

This year, nine restaurants - The Capitol Club, Coastal Kitchen, Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant, Gusto Girls, Healeo, Poppy, The Signature, Tidbit Bistro, and Urban Wine Café - donated 10% of their proceeds to the three LGBT non-profits focused on health, wellness, and pride.

Gay City Health Project is a Gay and Bisexual men's clinic offering a wide range of health services and is the premiere provider for HIV and STD testing in King County. Gay City Health Project promotes the health of Gay and Bisexual men and works to prevent HIV transmission by building community, fostering communications, and nurturing self-esteem. Seattle Counseling Services is a community resource that advocates, educates and serves to advance the social wellbeing and mental health of the LGBT community, and has been serving the community since 1969. The Pride Project is run by an all-volunteer board that puts on events to raise money for local non-profits. This year, The Pride Project was in charge of the beer gardens at the PrideFest, and was responsible for producing PrideFeast.

"This is PrideFeast's second year, and our hope is that it will grow every year with more and more restaurants participating," Wilson said.
