Despite the statistics that there are over 4,000 homeless youth in New York City, of which over 1,000 are LGBT, New York State continues to reduce funding for the organizations that help this segment of the population. The nation’s largest resource for these young men and women is The Ali Forney Center, which has been housing LGBT youth since 2002. This organization has proven itself as the safety net for many who are in desperate need of shelter and care. Support this vital organization at The Ali Forney Center’s 7th Annual OASIS event on July 20. Join others at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers for cocktails on the pier and bid on an array of auction items. The evening includes an open bar courtesy of Chopin Vodka and Milagro Tequila , a raffle prize, music by DJ JonJon Battles, an extensive silent auction, and 2015 Emmy Nominee for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Tituss Burgess.
