BUFFALO! WOW! Thank you to everyone who turned out for the Pride Center! 2019’s first fundraiser was like totally a huge success. Lockhouse really knows how to host!
What is this thing we lovingly call “Shitty Hawkins”? As you probably already know, we’ve been working hard to steer our industry away from a gender-based binary price structure. We were the first studio in Buffalo to break this outdated standard, which you can read more about here. We decided leading up to our first Lockhouse-based fundraiser to go with the cheeky name “Shitty Hawkins” to parody the Sadie Hawkins dances of years passed. While the idea of breaking tradition was the intent of Sadie Hawkins, it still held the mold of a binary. Love is love. Hair is hair. Fundraising should be fun. And here we are.
Now the numbers we’ve all been waiting for: The grand total raised for the Pride Center of WNY this time around was $3,128! Between our Big Check printed + donated by Ace Flag showing the amount raised from the cover charge, and the extra donations and art auction bid we collected, our total this time around was almost as much as both previous parties combined! Great job, Buffalo!
