"Hollyween" Stars Glam It Up for LGBT Teens at Ali Forney Center
New York, NY - Forget about ghosts and goblins, this Halloween is all about glitz and glamour at Eventi, A Kimpton Hotel. Guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite Hollywood icon while enjoying a night full of tricks and treats at "Hollyween" on Monday, October 31 beginning at 7 p.m. in the hotel’s ballroom.
Hosted in partnership with PASSPORT Magazine, the event will benefit the Ali Forney Center and include an open bar with cocktails by 42 Below Vodka, catering by the hotel’s Bar Basque restaurant, a raffle, silent auction, music and a costume contest.
Celebrants will be supporting an outstanding cause as they help raise money for the Ali Forney Center which provides housing for homeless LGBT youth in New York City. Today, more and more LGBT teens are finding the courage to be public about their sexual orientation.
Tragically, as many as 25 percent of these teens are rejected by their families and many end up homeless on the streets. The Ali Forney Center is committed to providing young people with safe, dignified, nurturing environments where their needs can be met and where they can begin to put their lives back together.
Tickets are priced at $25 for general admission and $75 for VIP entrée and can be purchased by visiting http://www.hollyween.org/. General admission includes entrance to the party, the opportunity to participate in the Hollyween costume contest and access to the open bar. VIP tickets also include a gift bag, access to a private VIP reception with passed hors d’oeuvres and a separate premium open bar hosted in a VIP suite. RSVP is required to attend.
Eventi supports dozens of LGBT community organizations and is part of the first hotel brand to score 100 percent on the HRC Corporate Equality Index Score. For over 30 years, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has provided support to the community through KPride, the company’s employee resource center in addition to many other initiatives.
Be sexy. Be fabulous. Be outrageous. But be at Eventi this Hollyween for a "spooktacular" party that is not to be missed.
