Event Description

For tickets to Spray Fire Island, our weekend of events in the pines taking place August 17-19, 2018, click here

This summer, Sharegurl, Hal Rubenstein, Eric Sawyer, Oswaldo Perdomo, in collaboration with the Ali Forney Center (AFC) and GMHC, are presenting SPRAY, a weekend long series of events in Fire island Pines, in order to benefit the vital, life-affirming work being done on behalf of homeless LGBTQ youth and those living with and at-risk for HIV. SPRAY launches on Friday, August 17th, incorporating three unique celebrations at individual locations, ending on Sunday August 19th. 

SPRAY's goal is to raise $300,000 to care for our community. We invite you to join our efforts in producing this event and helping to provide desperately needed services for thousands of individuals who benefit from these important organizations. To heighten the impact of your participation, our lead partner Barclays, in collaboration with the Ali Forney Center Board of Directors, have come together to offer a generous $100,000 challenge grant - agreeing to match funds raised, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. 

Because of this matching grant, your support will have a double impact. 

We'd be so delighted and grateful if you would join our efforts to reach this goal and enjoy this season's most original weekend on Fire Island.                                   

The Ali Forney Center is the nation's largest and most comprehensive organization dedicated to caring for and housing homeless LGBTQ youth. Each year AFC provides care for nearly 2,000 young people, serving 177,000 meals and offering on-site medical and mental health care, substance abuse support, career and educational services, HIV education/testing/treatment services, and an expansive offering of programs designed to help these young people overcome the traumas of family rejection and rebuild their lives. You can learn more about AFC by clicking here or visiting its website at www.aliforneycenter.org

GMHC's is the world’s first and leading provider of HIV/AIDS prevention, care and advocacy.
