Fire Island for the 6th annual LBT Women’s Pride in the Pines Dance (400 women expected), including COMPLIMENTARY wine, vodka & hors d’oeuvres plus a great silent auction (fantastic high-end bargains in past years, such as theatre tickets, restaurants and travel). 

Last year all 400 Dance tickets were sold and over $127,000 was raised for charity.

Dress code: Classic White.  

The LGBTQ Focus Foundation is a 501(c)3 that produces Women's Pride in the Pines. In 2016 it will benefit Ali Forney and HMI (the Hetrick Martin Institute). Both groups help LGBTQ youth and especially at-risk youth and homeless young people. (40% of homeless youth are LGBT and 30% are thrown out of their homes after they come out).  In past years over 75% of event proceeds benefited the designated charity, as overlead is low. 

Pride in the Pines is proudly co-hosted by Yale GALA, Inc.
