In anticipation of this year’s festival, Augusta Pride is conducting a campaign to dedicate the stage to our long-time entertainment coordinator and artistic muse, Richard Justice. Richard joined the board in 2013 and had a guiding hand in much of what we enjoy today, notably the President’s Soiree and the Beats on Broad dance party. Richard died from complications of Covid-19 on August 27, 2020. In his time with Pride, Richard was a constant and unmistakable presence on the stage at our festival and it seems only fitting that we celebrate his life by enshrining in him the place that he loved best.
Dedication of the Augusta Pride stage is achieved through a donation of $8000. An anonymous donor has pledged to match 100% all donations up to $4000 to meet this goal. Please join us in remembering Richard as we celebrate his life, as he would have wanted, by celebrating our own.
After clicking the Donate button below, click "Use this donation for" and choose Richard Justice Stage Sponsor to earmark your donation. Note that earmarked donations are not elligible for VIP perks. VIP elligible donations may be made using the general donate button on the Sponsors page. In the unfortunate event that COVID Conditions preclude Pride, all donations will roll forward until we can fully celebrate next year.
