Before heading home to celebrate Thanksgiving, come join your neighbors for a drink at Icon.
ADDITIONALLY, we will be collecting goods for the at-risk LGBTQ youth at The Hetrick-Martin Institute. Bringing a donation or giving a monetary donation will earn you a free drink! We will have someone from Hetrick-Martin there to share a little about how you can help at-risk and homeless LGBTQ youth as the cold months draw in. Please see the list below for ideas of items to bring.
Drink Specials, Food, DJ, and Dancers
Alejandro, the new manager, of Icon will be extending Happy Hour (1/2 price drinks) for OA members for the entire event. Additionally, there will be some nibbles and a DJ starting early.
For those who come late, there will also be some beautiful dancers (male and female) busting some moves on the bar.
ABOUT HETRICK-MARTIN www.hmi.org
Since its founding, Hetrick-Martin Institute has grown from a small, volunteer-led grass-roots advocacy organization into a leading professional provider of social support and programming for at-risk lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning (LGBTQ) youth. HMI youth members, ranging in age from 13 to 24, come from over 300 zip codes throughout all of New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area. They are of all colors and sizes, come from all kinds of backgrounds, and their enthusiasm and creativity is boundless.
HMI is also the host agency for the groundbreaking Harvey Milk High School, devoted to serving at-risk youth and founded in 1985 in collaboration with the New York City Department of Education, which administers the school and is responsible for admissions.
