Join us on Saturday, June 13 in Fire Island for the 5th 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 Susan Levine and Johnny Dynell. Dress code: Classic White. Pride in the Pines benefits an LGBT charity each year (rotates): in 2015 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 2014 over 80% of event proceeds benefited the designated charity. All men are welcome to attend the event as well. It is easy to get to Whyte Hall from NYC: via Sayville Ferry ( – $16 round-trip) or special MTA LIRR-Ferry packages (take the Manhattan or Brooklyn LIRR to Sayville LIRR Station, transfer via Colonial Taxi to Ferry – $31 round-trip package) or via water taxi from any other beach on the Island .
