The Greater Fort Lauderdale LGBT Chamber of Commerce is hosting its annual Back to School Supply Drive. Its upcoming mixer is on Tuesday, August 21 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and is presented by Reyka Vodka. The location is B Ocean at 1140 Seabreeze Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.
The event supports Tools for School and the Broward Education Foundation. Attendees are urged to bring school supply donations to help teachers and students be prepared for the 2018/2019 school year. The Pride Center will also have someone on hand to accept financial contributions.
“We’re happy once again to collect needed school supplies for Broward Education Foundation and Tools for School Broward,” said Ebony Wilson, Prevention Outreach Coordinator at the Pride Center. “They’ve let us know in years past that the coalition of LGBTQ-plus groups that we spearhead has been the largest contributor of supplies to the annual drive. What a great testimony and message from our LGBTQ-plus communities! We’re honored to help equip students for success.”
Attendees will receive:
- One complimentary Reyka Vodka Drink
- Cash Bar with Happy Hour Specials
- Complimentary Hors D'oeuvres
The evening is complimentary for GFLGLCC members. The cost is $10 for future members. Valet parking is $5. If you are unable to attend, you can also donate supplies at the bins at The Pride Center or donate money on its website at PrideCenterFlorida.org.
