Hello Readers. For those of you on the East Coast, check your calendar for Thursday 8/25 at 8pm. What’s that? You have no plans? Now you do! Mosey on over to A Practical Wedding and pick up a ticket to the Yay! NY reception party and fundraiser event for Lambda Legal. You can even contribute if you can’t attend but want to support Lambda Legal. Plus if you go, you’ll get to meet Anne and me as we celebrate our legal wedding! IRL!
Info on the A Practical Wedding dance party:
Because the organizers think that the best way to celebrate New York’s Marriage Equality Law is to help raise money to bring equality to other states as well, all attendees will be asked to make a suggested $40 tax-deductible donation to Lambda Legal at the door in an effort to raise $10,000 for the organization. Lambda Legal was chosen as the charity recipient because of their longstanding commitment to “achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work.”
The Tote Bags
To allow people who can’t attend the celebration to help support the event, we’re offering limited edition tote bags, for sale for just $20. They feature the Yay New York logo, a simple and evocative symbol of marriage equality. That and they’re super stylish. Get them before they are gone.
