The Grass Roots Gay Rights Foundation celebrated its 30th anniversary with a check presentation to several nonprofits Friday, November 9, at Halcyon SF. Funds went to Openhouse, PRC, the Oakland LGBTQ Community Center, St. James Infirmary, Lavender Seniors of the East Bay, and Sage USA. GRGR Foundation board President David Hendrickson said that the organization started as a small group of friends who wanted to assist in the AIDS crisis of the 1980s. Today, it promotes a happy, healthy, and connected Bay Area LGBTQ community. This year it distributed $240,000 to its beneficiaries.
