Fun Events with LGBT Center of Greater Reading 

1) The FUUBC Social Justice Coordinating Committee is willing to support the $80 ticket price of a congregant/or congregants who would like to go to “Prom”.If you would like to attend with financial assistance, please email your interest to g.social.justice@uuberks.org.

On Saturday, September 10, 2022 from 5-10PM the LGBT Center of Greater Reading is hosting our signature event, Dance Through the Decades Gala at the DoubleTree in Reading. Our theme for this year is PROM and the event is OPEN TO ALL adults! This is significant because many individuals that we serve were unable to attend prom without hiding their true selves.

We will have silent and live auctions, brief acknowledgements, and provide a short opportunity to pledge your support, should you choose. In addition, we will honor Tim Greusel, Edward Babiarz, Susan Denaro, and Franki Aitken for their unwavering support of our mission.  

Proceeds from this event support our ever-evolving urgent and critical support services, such as counseling, crisis intervention, and support groups.  Your support provides urgent, critical care to people like “John.” John’s father cried while hearing his child laugh for the first time since John’s pediatrician told him that being a part of the LGBTQIA+ community was wrong.

Be ready to dance and celebrate PROM the way it deserves to be celebrated:  with a red carpet, rainbow balloon arch, three course meal, DJ, photo booth and much more!

2) On Saturday, October 8, 2022 from 1-7pm, the LGBT Center is celebrating its 2nd annual “Out in The Park” at First Energy Stadium. 

FUUBC would like to set up a booth similar to Pridefest as an outreach. We want to let people know there is a welcoming spiritual community here in downtown Reading. We need your help. Many of us are out of town that weekend so we need a volunteer coordinator.  Booth set up time is 11am-12pm. If you are willing to coordinate or staff the booth for a shift, please email g.social.justice@uuberks.org with your preferred times.  

We will only commit if we have enough volunteers signed up by Aug. 28th.  Thank you for checking your schedules and joining in the effort.
