Drinking for a Change this weekend

It's never too early to start making plans for the weekend--especially when said plans involve a good cause. In that spirit, we invite you to join us in Drinking for a Change this Friday, 3/19 and Saturday, 3/20.

Drinking for a Change is a new nonprofit dedicated to engaging new donors in the LGBT movement through smaller contributions on a mass scale. This weekend, Drinking for a Change has partnered with several NYC bars that will each encourage patrons to donate $1-per-drink on both nights. The Pride Agenda, the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, and the Ali Forney Center will receive the proceeds from these nights.

So if you’ll be in NYC this weekend, please consider having a drink (or several--but please be responsible) at one of the participating venues listed below. If you are on Facebook, you can also RSVP for the event and spread the news about it to your friends here.

We hope you'll join us--it's not every weekend that contributing to the fight for equality and justice is as easy as ordering a martini.
