CHEER SF Named 2010 SF Pride Organizational Community Grand MarshalCHEER SF

The San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration Committee announced that CHEER SF is the 2010 Organizational Community Grand Marshal, a title the community bestows upon one organization that has made an exceptional contribution to the LGBT community in recent years.

CHEER SF performs high energy cheerleading routines for over one million people nation-wide and internationally every year. It is the largest, most visible, most fiscally successful and longest-running community-based, non-profit, adult cheerleading team in the world. CHEER SF is also the only LGBT identified cheerleading team to be invited to perform at a US Presidential Inauguration (January 1997). In recent years, CHEER SF has raised over $100,000 for over 40 charities.

"CHEER San Francisco is honored to have been selected as the recipient of the Organizational Grand Marshal for the 40th Annual SF Pride Parade,” said Steven Burke, CHEER SF Program Director.

“We are celebrating our 30th Anniversary this year, and being named a Grand Marshal for the grandest Pride Parade of them all is an honor that we cherish. The team looks forward to sharing our unique brand of pride, spirit and entertainment at this year’s Parade and Celebration.”

Past SF Pride Organizational Community Grand Marshals include the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Gay Asian Pacific Alliance, Rainbow World Fund and Equality California, among others.

“Pride is thrilled that the community selected CHEER SF as this year’s Organizational Community Grand Marshal,” said SF Pride’s Executive Director Amy André. “We wish CHEER SF a fabulous 30th anniversary year and look forward to celebrating and honoring their spirit and community leadership in June and throughout 2010.”
