VIP Party at San Francisco Pride


We will show our pride at the “Party of the Year,” on Sunday, June 28, 2015, at the San Francisco Civic Center Rotunda. SF Pride is our biggest annual fundraiser and community celebration. The money we earn in one afternoon helps to support the rest of our events throughout the year.

At Pride 2015, NIA has the honor of being one of two selected groups to host a VIP beverage bar. This is our seventh year as a beverage booth host, but our first year as an exclusive VIP vendor.

If you’d like to join our fun and festive group in 2016, please email Brandy directly.
