BENEFITING: ALI FORNEY CENTER
EVENT DATE: Aug 12, 2017
The Aqua Party is an annual benefit held in the Fire Island Pines. Our 7th Annual Aqua Pool Party will be held on August 12, 2017.
Our mission is to bring hope, opportunity, equality and sustainability to those in need, locally and across the world.
AQUA supports The Ali Forney Center as a wonderul organization that provides comprehensive emergency housing program for LGBT youths aged 16 - 24. Their goal is to provide homeless LGBT youths with the support and services they need to escape the streets and begin to live healthy and independent lives.
The statistics for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) homeless youth are shocking, as this group represents up to 40% all young people experiencing homelessness. Considering that LGBT youth represent an estimated 7% of the total youth population, these numbers are disproportionately high.
This minority group has a major problem, rejection and homelessness. Without the help from the gay community and friends of our community, these children will be lost to drugs and disease. We will not allow this to happen.
