The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, commonly called The Center, celebrated Pride 2018 with a Garden Party at Hudson River Park's Pier 84. An astounding collection of restaurant partners and chefs came together to provide guests delicious bites all evening. Proceeds from the Garden Party supports The Center's life-changing and life-saving programs and services - with donations from the evening helping to keep the doors open 365 days a year.

"For 35 years, Garden Party has been The Center's vibrant kick-off to Pride week, honoring our amazing Center volunteers and supporters," remarked Executive Director Glennda Testone. "We are a community that has long stood together to protect the freedom to be who we are, to love one another and to celebrate that love—and our lives—proudly."
