We’re Creating Coasters For Equality


David Dresner, a St. Louis entrepreneur and Washington University alum, is using his company to support a much larger cause: Equality for all Missourians.

David is best known for being a passionate businessman and heavily involved in the local community. His companies, Sleeve a Message and Coast a Message, are supporting Equality for all Missourians by donating custom-printed coasters for the 10th Annual Urbanaire PROMO Event, occurring Friday, May 13.

Sleeve a Message is a local manufacturer and printer of custom beverage sleeves and coasters. The company is eager to utilize this print medium to promote powerful messaging such as equality. This is David’s second year donating to the cause.

Founder and CEO, David Dresner, realizes that beverage sleeves and coasters are not only effective for messaging and branding, but also to disperse essential information to the masses. “It is important to use everything at my disposal to support causes near and dear to my heart, especially in the current political climate.”

PROMO is Missouri’s statewide organization advocating for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality through legislative action, electoral politics, grassroots organizing and community education.

This year’s Urbainaire event is aimed at highlighting equality for the community. To go along with the “highlighting” theme, attendees are asked to wear their brightest colors in solidarity.

Other than great drink coasters, attendees can look forward to an open bar, live entertainment, a live DJ, and a special main event experience. Premium ticket holders can also enjoy appetizers from over 20 local restaurants and a live and silent auction. All proceeds will benefit PROMO and LGBT equality in Missouri.
