Reimagine Reno! and the LGBTQ Community with The City of Reno

It is time to Reimagine Reno! And that is precisely what is happening.

If you have been waiting to get involved then help develop the vision.

Reno is getting a new master plan. Now is the time for everyone who cares about our city to influence the vision. Back in March, Sean Savoy met with Reno’s mayor when she agreed to include the LGBT community in the city’s master plan! Build Our Center is proud to support this progress. For the first time in our city’s history, the LGBT community has a voice as a recognized Focus Group as part of Reimagine Reno.

September 24 from 5:30 to 7 PM in the Reno City Hall Council Chambers. Go to to register. There are only 50 available spots, so register early.

Join us at Feed the Camel!

Feed The Camel Food Truck event has chosen Build Our Center
to be their charity of choice in July.

Head on down to McKinley Arts and Culture Center in Reno from 5-8pm and enjoy the deliciousness of local Food Trucks.

Build Our Center will have a booth with a game or project to entertain you.

“At each Give a Hump event, Feed the Camel producer Mellow Yellow Events will provide a minimum of $500 to the nonprofit beneficiary that month, while the food trucks will also donate a portion of their sales. Mellow Yellow Events Owner Melissa Williams states, “It’s exciting to provide the opportunity for people to give back to the community just by coming out and eating at some of the best food trucks in the area! Plus it gives the nonprofits a chance to educate and interact with people on their cause.”

Funds from Build Our Center’s July Give a Hump day will go towards their goal of establishing and sustaining a community center that will provide a safe and supportive space and environment where people of all ages and backgrounds in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and allied (LGBTQA) community can come together under one roof for cultural, educational, health, social and wellness programs.”

We hope yo see you there.
