    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.
