Join us for the 12st Annual MENY Gala- NYC at Slate Restaurant in New York City on April 28, 2010. This exciting event will include a buffet of food, drinks and great company. We will have community activists, organizers, political leaders and celebrities all enjoying the festivities while raising money for Marriage Equality New York (a 501c3 not for profit organization which makes your admission price a tax-deductible donation).
The MENY Gala will be recognizing and honoring: Queer Rising, NYS Senator Peralta, Shannon Minter, and B.D. Wong for their work in moving marriage equality forward in New York State and, in some cases, on the national front. This recognition comes from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and it represents how important this issue is in our everyday lives. There will also be a silent auction put on by MENY PAC (our political action committee is not a 501c3 and donations on the auction are not tax-deductible)
Online ticketing for the 12th Annual MENY Gala Dinner - NYC will be open until 4/27/10- with special pricing for early purchase. If you would like to consider buying a journal ad or donating items for our raffle or gift bags please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
