THE BENEFICIARY

The Ali Forney Center (AFC) is the largest organization helping LGBTQ homeless youth in the United States. By managing and developing transitional housing, AFC helps approximately 1,400 youths every year, most between the ages of 16 and 24.

Named after Ali Forney, a gender-nonconforming youth who was murdered in New York in 1997, AFC is located in 15 buildings across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. In 2017, it provided 124 beds a night for homeless LGBT youth. In addition, AFC runs a drop-in center where clients can apply for housing, are provided food and hygiene services, mental health and case-management services, substance abuse services, and can get health care for free.


THE EVENT

On February 27th, renowned violinist Emanuele De Biase will present works from his new project, “Bach to the People,” at the Church of the Ascension in New York. The concert will feature 3 Sonatas from Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, a cornerstone of Emanuele’s “Bach to the People” project, which aims to make Bach’s music more widely available.

After coming to know the AFC last year, Emanuele pledged to support the organization’s exceptional work in the year ahead. To that end, all proceeds from the concert will benefit the Ali Forney Center.
