Only a few days ago, the Ali Forney Center suffered a devastating setback: Hurricane Sandy caused irreparable damage to their Drop-in Center in Chelsea, flooding the venue with 4 feet of water. This facility previously served up to 1,000 homeless LGBTQ youth a year, providing comprehensive health care services, thousands of meals, counseling services, showers, and more.
This facility is now uninhabitable – an unthinkable loss for the AFC and for our community.
But here's the good news: you can help.
AND: AFC Board Member Bill Shea and his Husband Frank Selvaggi, an advocate for homeless LGBTQ youth, are matching up to $50,000 of all revenue raised! This means you can double your donation by being a part of this evening of support for AFC.
Please join us this Sunday at Industry bar as we come together to support the Ali Forney Center in their hurricane relief efforts. Mike Ruiz and Ally Sheedy will be our fabulous emcees. We’ll be entertained DJ Vito Fun, Marti Gould Cummings, Joseph Keckler, and Brett Gleason. We’ll have live music and performances, cocktails, prizes, raffle boys, surprises, and much more.
Industry bar will be our amazing and generous host - and they have agreed to donate 100 PERCENT of sales from the event to AFC.
