ASGRA Announces Brother, Help Thyself as our 2016 Charity Partner.
Part of ASGRA's mission is fundraising for the community. Each year ASGRA chooses one 501(c)3 organization for which we will raise funds. For 2016 ASGRA has chosen Brother Help Thyself (BHT).
BHT is a community organization made up of local area bear, motorcycle and leather clubs. BHT's mission is to provide financial support and leadership in the areas of health, education, culture and advocacy to non-profit organizations serving the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) community in the Washington, DC and Baltimore, Maryland metropolitan areas. BHT provides this support by way of various fundraising activities conducted throughout the year. In it's almost 40 years of existence BHT has given out $3 million dollars to such organizations as the Metro DC Community Center, area PFLAG chapters, the Rainbow History Project and the Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League.
ASGRA has set a goal of raising $500 for BHT by the end of the calendar year. Over the course of 2016, we will be holding various fundraising events to help us meet this goal. You can also help achieve this goal, by joining ASGRA. $5 of every membership in ASGRA goes to fundraising for our current charity partner.
If you have questions, you can contact any member of the ASGRA's board.
