David Lenz has been volunteering with the LGBT and Windsor Pride Community over the last ten years. In 2004, when the Pride Festival was cancelled due to lack of funding, he along with Robert Vitella, Dani Bobb, Marc Dubois and others reorganized the festival. David Lenz created and introduced the first sponsorship package for the organization as well as revised and introduced the new “Pride Guide” publication. Over the years, he has served as sponsorship coordinator, pride guide coordinator, Board member and festival chairperson for the last 3 years.
In addition to his role as President with the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest, David is currently the Senior Development Officer for Easter Seals Ontario where he handles sponsorship, donor relations, campaigns and fundraising events for the organization.
David believes the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest Inc. needs to continue to deliver world class events and strengthen community partners in the Windsor-Essex community to become a premier destination.
