A dinner-dance event being billed as a “swank event to raise critical funds for HIV/AIDs outreach, testing, prevention, education, and support” is returning to The Historical Thatched Cottage in Centerport on Saturday, December 7th.
Winter Ball, an evening benefiting The Long Island GLBT Services Network, holds special significance for the evening’s cause, as it commemorates World AIDS Day on December 1st. Long Island gay and bisexual men are still disproportionally affected by the virus, and The Network hopes to combat the continuing epidemic through funds raised at Winter Ball.
“This is an opportunity for Long Islanders to bring their dancing shoes and an appetite for a good time in support of an even better cause,” said David Kilmnick, CEO of The Long Island GLBT Services Network.
