At PPL, inclusion is a core value. That’s why we’re excited to sponsor Lehigh Valley Pride, scheduled for August 18 at the Allentown JCC.

For the second year, PPL will offer local artisans the opportunity to take something as mundane as a basic refrigerator and turn it into a beautiful work of art. Show your colors by using one of our recycle-ready refrigerators as your canvas. The crowd’s favorite artist will receive a $500 gift card.

If you’d like to participate, send us an email. The first 5 artists to respond will be selected to have their work showcased during the festival. We will provide a voucher for art supplies.

Lehigh Valley Pride shines a spotlight on the LGBT arts and culture community, while celebrating the diversity of the region. Organized by the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, the event takes place Sunday, August 18, from 12 to 6 p.m. at the Allentown JCC.
