For Immediate Release SILICON VALLEY PRIDE SIGNS POLLO DEL MAR PRESENTS California’s Great America Pride Night Producer to Promote SVPride2014 SAN JOSE, CA — Silicon Valley Pride today announces its partnership with Pollo Del Mar Presents. The Northern California nightlife event production operation will head marketing and promotion for Silicon Valley Pride, formerly known as San Jose Pride, said Acting President Thaddeus Campbell. “Our Board was impressed by the success of California’s Great America Pride Night 2014, which was coproduced and promoted by Pollo Del Mar Presents,” said Campbell. “We believe this partnership can bring a similar sense of community involvement, excitement and rebirth to Silicon Valley Pride.” Silicon Valley Pride 2014 is a one-day LGBT-themed festival scheduled for Sun., August 17, at Discovery Meadow in Downtown San Jose. The newly-rebranded event celebrates its 39th-anniversary with two stages of entertainment, local vendors, community outreach and more. To honor its extensive history, and kick off the festivities in earnest, SVPride reintroduces a rally at St. James Park on Saturday, August 16. With nearly a decade of experience producing and marketing LGBT-specific events throughout Northern California, Pollo Del Mar Presents has helmed the corporate-financed California’s Great America Pride Night for the last two years. Silicon Valley Pride marks the outfit’s first foray into work with a community-based nonprofit, 501c3 Pride festival. “Partnering with Silicon Valley Pride presents a tremendous opportunity,” states Pollo Del Mar, the Bay Area drag personality behind the promotion company. “The festival is working hard to rebrand itself, which has everyone involved excited about new ideas, approaches and forms of outreach. This is a perfect use of my unique understanding of and relationships with the diverse organizations, individuals and businesses within our local LGBT community.” For additional information about Silicon Valley Pride, sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, visit: www.SVPride.com. # # # For additional information or to schedule an interview with Silicon Valley Pride Acting President Thaddeus Campbell, Pollo Del Mar or members of the Silicon Valley Pride Board of Directors, call (415) 819-8562 or email: Thaddeus.Campbell@SVPride.com.
