Happy New Year to all of you!!
The New Haven Pride Center finished off 2010 with a flurry of activity: GLANCE held its fourth Halloqueen fundraiser on November 1, attracting more than two dozen people to an event DJ'd by Matt Perrone of Dark Anjel Entertainment. The group also held its first monthly game night, which takes place the first Monday of each month, in December, and held a successful movie night cross-promotion with the new Ladies Link group.
NHPC Youth, the Center's new youth group, held a Rated Q fundraiser in November; the group also announced plans to change its regular meeting time and place. Click here for more details.
Our November wine tasting fundraiser was a big success with great wines and good food; we look forward to partnering on future wine-related events with our friends at Coastal Wines.
Maureen Thomas, one of our board members, spoke at PFLAG in December, the event was well attended by parents, friends as well as teens. Board co-President Thomas Donato exhibited at CABO's November Business Expo, at which state comptroller (and now Lieutenant Governor) Nancy Wyman was the special guest.
The Center's inaugural scholarship fundraiser has proven to be one of the biggest successes to date for us, raising thousands to establish a fund that will power the Center's annual scholarship. Donations are still being accepted; to find out more, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our scholarship page.
In early December, we hosted our annual holiday party with many attendees, including both new and old friends. We look forward to another great year in 2011 as we move into our 15th year of existence!
Plans also got underway for our 2011 Dorothy Awards; click here for more information about the Awards, the Center's biggest fundraising event of the year.
