Thank you, Mario!


sw-2009-15¬†After ten events, it’s a well-deserved break for founder Mario Larochelle as he steps down as chair of the Swirl and Twirl organizing committee.

Mario’s strong connections with wine and beer vendors were a natural fit for creating a food-, wine- and beer-tasting event. Going above and beyond the call of duty, Mario has been an inspiration for all the proud volunteers on the organizing committee.

Since Mario created the event in 2003 to support local queer and queer-supporting charities, Swirl and Twirl has raised over $60,000 in ten amazing events that get bigger and better each year. It’s no exaggeration to say that Mario is a leader of hero of our community.

Glenn Crawford, a committee member since the event’s inception, will be taking over as chair for Swirl and Twirl 11. He and the rest of the committee are grateful for the leadership and support of Mario and thank him for all his amazing work.
