Touchings Others in a Positive Way: Community & Camaraderie

Gay CommunityA sense of community has always been at the heart of Outings & Adventures existence, camaraderie and community! Our social alternative offering active and unique adventures to the gay community not only brought us together for thrills and excitement like kayaking and zip lining but united us to make a difference the communities we serve.

Outings & Adventures followers clocked in excess of 300 volunteer hours and raised over $20,000 for causes near and dear to us all. We hosted drag bingo at Hamburger Mary’s, Tampa, benefiting the Metro Wellness and Community Center raising more money than any other weekly drag bingo fundraiser. Outings & Adventures created and hosted fundraising events for Creative Clay of St. Petersburg with an annual event called Lanes for Change. We’ve sponsored bowling teams for the Monday Mixed Classic, one of the country’s largest LGBT bowling leagues and softball teams in the Suncoast Softball League.

The St. Petersburg AIDS Walk was a recipient of Outings & Adventures fundraising efforts as were ALSO Out Youth, Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, Equality Florida, Metropolitan Ministries, St. Petersburg Pride and others.
