Join us on Saturday, June 21 in Fire Island for the 4th annual LBT Women’s Pride in the Pines Dance (400 women expected), including COMPLIMENTARY wine, vodka & hors d’oeuvres plus a great silent auction (fantastic high-end bargains in 2013, such as theatre tickets and travel). Music by DJ/Producer Charo Velecio. Dress code: Classic White. Pride in the Pines benefits an LGBT charity each year (rotates): in 2014 HMI (the Hetrick Martin Institute) is the beneficiary. HMI helps LGBTQ youth to reach their full potential, especially at-risk youth and homeless young people: 40% of homeless youth are LGBT and 30% are thrown out of their homes after they come out. In 2013 over 75% of event proceeds benefited the designated charity.
