Bethpage Federal Credit Union Returns for Third Year as Presenting Sponsor of 25th Annual Long Island Pride
June 1, 2015 - The LGBT Network is proud to announce Bethpage Federal Credit Union as the Presenting Sponsor of Long Island Pride 2015 to be held on Saturday, June 13, 2015 in Huntington Village. 2015 marks Bethpage’s third year as the Presenting Sponsor and the largest corporate contribution received in the Parade’s 25-year history.
“The LGBT Network applauds Bethpage Federal Credit Union for its leadership in supporting Long Island Pride as the largest LGBT cultural event on Long Island,” says LGBT Network CEO David Kilmnick. “With Bethpage’s continued support for 2015, we are able to build upon the success of Long Island Pride 2014 with more groups marching in the parade, more exhibitors at PrideFest in Huntington’s Heckscher Park, and headliner entertainment.” More than 18,000 attended PrideFest in 2014 – the event’s largest attendance ever.
“Bethpage is proud to continue as the Presenting Sponsor of Long Island Pride 2015 to support The LGBT Network’s efforts to build visibility and community as part of our ongoing commitment to cultural diversity and responsible banking,” says Linda Armyn, Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs at Bethpage.
Bethpage Federal Credit Union began its support of the LGBT Network in 2011 with a major campaign gift for the Bethpage Community Room at the LGBT Network’s Nassau County community center site – the largest corporate gift in The Network’s history.
Bethpage is also continuing its unique affinity program providing additional donations to The Network whenever a constituent of The Network opens an account. The Bethpage Affinity Program provides The LGBT Network’s tens of thousands of constituents the opportunity to be part of community credit union that has been a partner to and supporter of The LGBT Network. This unique partnership with Bethpage also marked the first time that any Long Island company established such a program with a LGBT organization.
