Bars and restaurants across Vancouver will stand proud and pledge their support to the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation this July and August by taking part in the inaugural Pride Crawl Fundraiser to generate financial support for the Dr. Peter Centre in the city’s West End.

“We are indebted to the generous support of an ever-growing group of local bars and restaurants for showing their pride and giving back to those living with HIV in a profound and meaningful way by taking part in our inaugural Pride Crawl,” says Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation Philanthropy Officer Brittany Grant. “We look forward to this event becoming a regular part of the annual celebration of Pride in Vancouver for years to come.”
