Become a Sponsor of the Knight Hawks as we celebrate 25 Years​

This year, the Knight Hawks of Virginia are celebrating our 25th anniversary of Service to the community.  As such, we are looking for sponsors to help us help the community.


WHO ARE THE KNIGHT HAWKS OF VIRGINIA

The organization is a voluntary fellowship of individuals having a common interest.  The organization seeks to foster a better understanding and appreciation within the community through social, charitable and educational endeavors and activities.  Each year the Knight Hawks of Virginia hold events the help raise funds for local charities that serve the Hampton Roads area.  We have given thousands of dollars in badly needed funds to organizations such as the LGBT Life Center, For Kids, Hampton Roads Pride, Equi-Vets, and Equality Virginia. 

The Knight Hawks of Virginia were formed in 1993, and from the beginning, the original charter members endeavored to throw events in the area that not only attracted people from all over the East Coast of the United States, but also went to help local charities continue to work in Hampton Roads.

Our signature event of the year is our annual cruise on the Carrie B.  This year, the 25th anniversary of our organization, we are planning one of our largest cruises in our organization’s history and our benefactor for all profits of this event will be the LGBT Center of Hampton Roads.
