    For 2020 the funds are distributed through TAP,
    The Twirl Assistance Program

    From our humble beginnings when the price of admission was a teddy bear for children with HIV/AIDS, to now – in our 11 years of events we have collected over 5,000 stuffed animals & toys for area children in need and donated over $180,000 to local charities and programming! Even as we evolve and grow, we remain committed to our core mission of “making a difference, one dance step at a time.”

     

    This year we started the Twirl Assistance Program (TAP). These emergency hardship grants are intended for self-identified Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Queer (LGBTQ) residents 18 years and older in the Charlotte metropolitan area, who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and need financial assistance with groceries, medical, and/or transportation costs.

     

    As part of TAP, we also created our Partner Referral Program, which allows these agencies to focus on their core services to the community, while we provide emergency financial assistance to their clients when/where needed.

    Our TAP partners:
