The #NYCLovesOrlando Coalition presents an evening celebrating love July 18 at Hudson Terrace in New York City to benefit the Emergency Response Fund at Stonewall Community Foundation.
Attendees can expect performances by Orlando native and Broadway actor-singer Mykal Kilgore (Motown, Book of Mormon, Hair), Tori Scott (54 Below, Joe’s Pub), Vicky Modica, Erik Sisco, Adam Chandler and Jodi Bluestein. Music direction is by Joshua Stephen Kartes.
“We know so many of us have been emotionally and spiritually impacted by the tragic and unnecessary deaths of 49 members of the LGBTQ and ally communities in Orlando last month,” said Sue Sena, co-founder, Swish Ally Fund and #NYCLovesOrlando Coalition leader. “We know that we have the power to make a difference in the face of such hate. Our communities have shown it time and time again over the last decade. Love has always prevailed. We are honored to partner with Hudson Terrace to lead this coalition for this inspiring and important event.”
Hudson Terrace is donating the space and staff for the evening. Guests will be treated to a premium cash bar with specialty cocktails, food by Convivium Catering and music by DJ Randy Bettis.
Tickets are available now at $49 “in honor of the 49 beautiful souls lost in Orlando”: 100% of event proceeds and 20% of bar receipts from Hudson Terrace will be directed to the local Orlando nonprofits who serve those impacted by the tragic shooting at Pulse Nightclub.
Hudson Terrace is located at 621 West 46th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues in Manhattan.
