Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus Partners with Bouschet Gourmet Food & Wine for Spring Fundraiser
cIn a strategic partnership to build opportunities to support the Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus (PSGMC), Bouschet Gourmet Food & Wine will host a fundraising wine tasting event, Friday, February 26 (5:30-7:00p.m.), which will be a combination virtual and in-person experience at 611 South Palm Canyon, Palm Springs in the Sun Center.
Building on the success of 22 seasons, PSGMC has skillfully transitioned into a virtual Chorus with initiatives that have driven community outreach to non-profits over the last few months. Programs included: 1,000 PPE masks made for Eisenhower Medical Center, school supplies collection for Coachella Valley Elementary, raised over $2,500 for the Desert AIDS Walk supporting DAP Health, a clothing and toiletries drive for Well in the Desert to support the homeless, and through the “Chorus Cares” program, a food and essential supplies campaign, then during the holidays, a toy drive both for Martha’s Village & Kitchen.
“The Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus is fortunate to have generous donors, partners and volunteers who have all helped us build strong and long-lasting relationships with many businesses in the valley. We look forward to having an enjoyable wine tasting event to thank our supporters and invite new friends to engage with the Chorus. Our members will soon be back on stage, enabling us to continue to do what we love to do, entertain the Coachella Valley,” said Steve Baker, President & 1st Tenor, PSGMC.
