PRIDE runs many events throughout the year for both the benefit of our clients and fundraising purposes. Stay up-to-date on PRIDE events by joining the "Huntingdon County PRIDE" group on Facebook.
The annual PRIDE Telethon is a highly anticipated community event televised on the local Comcast Channel 17 and live from the Smithfield Firehall. The 2014 event raised over $160,000! The event combines a three day auction with a talent day in which many local organizations and individuals are featured. In addition, there are many special activities sponsored by businesses, individuals, organizations and schools in the days leading up to event. In the past, this event has raised approximately one-third of the annual operating budget for Huntingdon County PRIDE.
