Hippodrome Pride Night for “Scrooge in Rouge” to Support Pride Youth Leadership Academy

The Hippodrome Mainstage Holiday Production this year will be “Scrooge in Rouge.” When the Royal Music Hall Variety Players come to perform “A Christmas Carol,” a bad case of food poisoning leaves only three surviving members to soldier on through a performance originally intended for a cast of twenty!

If you loved “Every Christmas Story Ever Told,” get ready for “Scrooge in Rouge”!

This quick-witted, cross-dressing version of the Charles Dickens classic, done in the style of the British Music Hall, abounds in bad puns, bawdy humor, and witty songs.

On December 7th for the 8 pm mainstage show, you can buy $25 tickets using the code “HippPride”. That code can be used online or over the phone. For each of those tickets sold, the Hippodrome will donate $10.00 to the Pride Center’s Pride Youth Leadership Academy.

PCCNCF is Seeking Responsible Volunteers for Key Positions

PCCNCF is YOUR Community Center and we can only continue to succeed with your help. We are looking for folks to fill some key volunteer positions at the center. We need a Volunteer Coordinator, Facilities Management Director, Promotion and Social Media Director, and an  HIV Services Program Coordinator. Each of these positions is important to the ongoing success of the center and only require about two hours a week commitment after the initial training period. If you are interested in helping out, please give us a call at 352-377-8915.

We can’t do it without you!




The Gainesville Area AIDS Project (GAAP) has been providing services to people with HIV/AIDS (PWA’s) in Alachua County since 1992.  GAAP is now a program of PCCNCF  managed by a committee made up of the individuals who have been providing GAAP’s services for many years.

GAAP services to PWA’s are:

a.    Food Services – (Lunch on Tuesdays)
b.    Gainesville Harvest – (Distribution of food received from Gainesville Harvest)
c.    TREE – (Distribution of household goods)
d.    Client Services – (Direct assistance to clients with one-time special needs)

PCCNCF is asking for your support for GAAP services as we look to develop long term funding streams for the program.  If you wish to designate a monetary donation for GAAP, make your check out to PCCNCF and put GAAP in the memo line.

We are also asking for the donation of TREE Project items such as laundry detergent, shampoo & soap, shaving cream & disposable razors, toothpaste & toothbrushes, bathroom tissue, household cleaning supplies, and bleach.  Donations of these items can be dropped off at the Pride Center during our regular operating hours.  If you would like a donation box for your organization or business, please call us at 352-377-8915 or send us an email at pccncf@pccncf.org.
