This kick-off event for Kitsap Pride’s 20 Events for 20 Years celebration features wine-tasting, food pairings, and a silent auction with art, music, cultural, and dining experiences. All money raised will do to support Kitsap Pride Network and the 20th celebration of Pride in Kitsap County, which is planned for July 16 in Evergreen Park.
Kitsap Pride couldn’t happen every year without the support of our sponsors. This year we are proud to have the Pride Foundation and Group Health Cooperative sponsoring the event. Come by and see them on July 18, 2015 from Noon to 5 p.m. at Evergreen Park in Bremerton.
Pride Foundation is a regional community foundation that inspires giving to expand opportunities and advance full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people across the Northwest. They invest in organizations, students, and leaders in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington—transforming individual acts of courage into a unified movement for change. Leveraging generous support from thousands of donors and volunteers, they provide the support that local visionaries need to effect change in their communities: grant dollars, scholarships, fellowships, technical expertise, convenings, and leadership development.
Group Health Cooperative is a member-governed, nonprofit health care system that coordinates care and coverage. Founded in 1947 and based in Seattle, Washington, Group Health and its subsidiary health carriers, Group Health Options, Inc. and KPS Health Plans, serve more than 600,000 residents of Washington and North Idaho. Group Health serves the Kitsap Peninsula with medical centers in Poulsbo, Silverdale, and Port Orchard and behavioral health services in Bremerton.

Sunday, July 20th, Kitsap Pride Network invites the community to Evergreen Park for a day of food and family friendly entertainment from 12 to 5pm.
This year’s theme, Reflections of Pride, honors the inherent dualism of the 1960s, which sparked the fiery Stonewall uprising amidst the peaceful revolution held by the “flower power” generation. Pride Chairperson, Michael Goodnow stated, “We’ve come a long way as a society. This past decade, we’ve experienced great strides forward in regards to the equal rights movement. It’s important to take a moment and reflect back on the struggles of those who came before us. It was their bravery, 45 years ago that got us to where we are today. “
Goodnow also shared a few highlights to this year’s event including performances by local artists the Dirty Beat Duo, and the first openly gay country music singer, Patrick Haggerty.
