LGBT Center Gala Surpri$e
At last night's Garden Party, the NYC LGBT Community Center's annual Pride kick-off gala, the audience got a wonderful surprise when Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer (above, right) announced a $1 million grant to the center's capital improvements fund. Nice, huh? But heads really swiveled when City Council Speaker Christine Quinn (above, left) announced an additional $8 million dollar grant from the city as a whole. I bet the Center's executive director, Richard Burns (above, middle), is still smiling. The Manhattan grant will pay out over the next two years, the one from NYC over the next four.
