LBGT Center of Raleigh plans for its "coming out party" in October

Posted by on Fri, Aug 21, 2009 at 1:29 PM

It's a party/fundraiser to get an LGBT Center for Raleigh off the ground. More on this as we get closer to the date, hopefully; for now, we have this "Save the Date" note from the organizers:

Saturday, October 17, 2009 is the day RALEIGH COMES OUT!

That's right. The LGBT Center of Raleigh is having a coming out party and you are invited.

It will take place at Moore Square in downtown Raleigh from 5 PM to 9 PM. Entry is free. There will be food, wine and beer to purchase, and free live entertainment to enjoy, along with the companionship of the gay and gay-friendly community from all of Eastern North Carolina.

Come and help us celebrate as we continue to build the foundation of a much-needed community center for all LGBT people and their friends.

But while we all want to have fun, this is also a fund-raising event, because without your financial support we can only go so far in making the dream a reality. Perhaps you can become a member at our Founders level by being one of the first one thousand people to donate $100 each, and take pride in knowing that you helped start a movement with huge consequences for us all. However, contributions of any size will be equally welcome. We know the economy has affected us all, so we will be grateful for whatever you can comfortably manage.

The LGBT Center of Raleigh is a 501-C-3 tax-exempt non-profit corporation. All contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

The Board of Directors hopes that you will all come out and have a blast.
