Fourth Annual Reunion Party on Aug. 8 Benefits LGBT Seniors
July, 2015 Client News
SAN DIEGO – July 29, 2015 – The San Diego Human Dignity Foundation (SDHDF) and the San Diego LGBT Community Center (The Center) hosts the “Reunion on the Bay” on Saturday, Aug. 8, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the Bay View Lawn at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina at 1380 Harbor Island Drive, San Diego, CA 92101. Individual tickets are now available via sdhdf.org or by calling 619-291-3383.

The fourth annual Reunion Party features a silent auction, hosted bar, gourmet food and live entertainment, including performances by the Imperial Court de San Diego and special guest star, comedian and actor Hal Sparks. Sparks starred in hit shows like “Queer as Folk” and “Talk Soup,” and will perform standup comedy from his one man show at the event.

Proceeds from the August 8 event benefits The Center’s Senior Services program. The program provides an inclusive community for LGBT seniors ranging from ages 50 to 90 years old. Senior Services – 50 and Better Together – strives to create a safe space where those 50 years and “better” will have access to important resources and referrals regarding health care, social services, and community activities. Reasons why funding for local LGBT seniors is important include that they are at a higher risk for a lack of access to healthcare and basic needs, at a higher risk for discrimination at the hands of healthcare and social service providers, as well as they are at a higher risk of abuse and neglect by healthcare providers and family members.

“The Reunion Party has grown over the last four years into a signature event not to be missed,” said John L. Brown, executive director of SDHDF. “We call it The Reunion because it is an opportunity for the LGBT community to reconnect with friends and socialize at a beautiful and unique location. At the same time The Reunion raises much needed funds to benefit San Diego’s LGBT seniors.”
