The Attic 20th Anniversary Gala went off without a hitch. Founder and Executive Director of the Attic Youth Center, Carrie Jacobs said, “The night was better than I could have ever imagined and the Kids are more excited than ever.” Attic youth and guests-donning bowties and ball gowns- filed into the glittering Crystal Tea Room in Center City Philadelphia to celebrate 20 years of unwavering service to LGBTQI youth.
Over 600 guests enjoyed the soulful sounds of a 10 piece Big Band, and new music from Jai Rodriguez, Celebrity Guest known best for his work on Queer Eye for a Straight Guy. The exquisite night exploding with gourmet food, live music and posh desserts was topped off by a energy packed auction headed by Omarosa of the popular television show, The Apprentice. By the end of the evening the dance floor was full and so was the donation box. A record number of supporters opened their wallets and donated generously to the Attic Youth Center in the hopes to help finance the Attic’s next 20 years.
