- NEW Rise Collection 2023-

The Rise PRide Necklace

In honor of Pride Month, we’ve revamped our Rise Pride Necklace for 2023! With 100% of net proceeds going to Ferndale Pride, we are so happy to support the LGBTQ+ community with this handmade gemstone necklace. This necklace is available all year round as a part of our everyday jewelry collection!

Did you know our Rise Collection has donated over $20,000 to nonprofits since 2020? Today, we’re highlighting one of our beneficiaries, Ferndale Pride. We wanted to kick off Pride month by celebrating the work Ferndale Pride does in our community.

All About Ferndale Pride

Ferndale Pride is an annual LGBTQ+ pride event held in Ferndale, Michigan. The event is organized by a group of volunteers and aims to celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community in the Ferndale area. Their mission statement reads: 

"Ferndale Pride celebrates the LGBTQAI communities of Ferndale and beyond through fundraising, entertainment, and cultural activities." 

 This mission statement captures the essence of what Ferndale Pride is all about. The event is not only a celebration of LGBTQ+ identity, but also a fundraiser for local LGBTQ+ organizations and causes. By bringing together the community for a day of entertainment and cultural activities, Ferndale Pride hopes to promote acceptance, understanding, and support for LGBTQ+ individuals and their allies. We are so happy to offer our support to such a great cause. 

One of the unique aspects of Ferndale Pride is its focus on showcasing local talent and businesses. The event features a variety of performers, vendors, and organizations from the Ferndale area, highlighting the diversity and vibrancy of the community. Uplifting our community is one of the pillars of Elaine B Jewelry - we are proud to support their mission.
