Picnic For Pinnacle – SA

All across the country, people are getting together in pubs, breweries, restaurants, wineries and at homes (and even on Zoom) and hosting a #PicnicForPinnacle in support of The Pinnacle Foundation including this fantastic bunch in South Australia.

The event is being held to raise much-needed funds for us to provide educational scholarships, mentoring and opportunities for young LGBTIQ+ Australians to realise their full potential and overcome challenges arising from their identity.

Host your own picnic between now and the end of March (we’ve extended the event due to lockdowns and circuit breakers across the country) and post your photos using the hashtag #PicnicForPinnacle on Instagram for your chance to win fantastic prizes!

A big shout out to the generous hosts Sparkle at the Whitmore for hosting this event in Adelaide!
