One-hundred-thirty-five disadvantaged youth benefited by a donation of Easter baskets from the Equality Business Alliance. The baskets were a donation to the Imperial Court de San Diego’s 19th Annual Community Easter Celebration.
Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, the 2021 Easter Egg Hunt “hopped” to a new location at Golden Hill Park as a Safe & Socially Distanced – Drive & Hop-Thru Easter Basket Giveaway.
The donation from the Equality Business Alliance- San Diego’s LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce & Tourism, was matched by the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation, the Imperial Court de San Diego, and other community donations in partnership with Uptown Tavern, Rich’s Nightclub, and Freshii Hillcrest. Nearly 500 baskets were donated to youth throughout San Diego county.
In observance of local health guidelines, the Drive & Hop-Thru Easter Basket Giveaway allowed parents & their children to safely pick up a free Easter basket while continuing to observe local and state health guidelines.
San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria, District 3 City Councilmember Stephen Whitburn, and City Commissioner Nicole Murray-Ramirez, were on hand, along with members of the Imperial Court de San Diego, local business and community leaders from the Equality Business Alliance. The delegation kicked off off the drive-thru eggstravaganza with an official ribbon cutting ceremony & press conference.
Baskets were distributed to families who pre-registered for the giveaway through Council District 3, Council President Pre-Tempore Stephen Whitburn’s office.
