Hurricane Relief Fundraiser for NYC’s Ali Forney Center


As we reported shortly after Hurricane Sandy, NYC's Ali Forney Center, the shelter and drop-in center for homeless LGBTQ youth, was devastated by the storm.

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.

AFC Board Member Bill Shea and his Husband Frank Selvaggi have announced they are matching up to $50,000 of all revenue raised for the center at a fundraiser this Sunday at Industry Bar in Hell's Kitchen from 4-7 pm. Tickets are a $20 donation at the door. More details on the fundraiser HERE.

You can also make online donations at this page. Please help if you can.
