Between now and June 23rd, the eve of New York City’s Pride Parade, we have a goal of raising at least $35,000 for GMHC. GMHC is the world's first HIV/AIDS service organization, is on the front lines providing services to over 13,000 men and women living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, and is fighting to end the AIDS epidemic. This month-long effort will culminate on Saturday evening, June 23rd, with our 5th annual New York Rooftop Pride Celebration! Anyone who donates or raises a minimum of $125 is invited to attend. UPDATE: WE REGRET THAT THE ROOFTOP PRIDE CELEBRATION ON JUNE 23RD IS NOW AT MAXIMUM CAPACITY & WE CANNOT INVITE ANY MORE GUESTS. PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION TO GMHC NONETHELESS AND YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EARLY INVITATION TO NEXT YEAR'S EVENT. All donations are 100% tax-deductible and go directly to GMHC.
Donations of $250 and up include entry into the Pride Raffle with a chance to win a weekend for two in Fire Island Pines (other great raffle prizes are listed below). Donations of $2,500 and higher will be matched 50% by our event hosts, and include a complimentary invitation to the GMHC 2018 Fall Gala.
