Masquerade Ball to raise funds for SOMA kids from LGBT families
December 9, 2017 @ 8:00 pm$20.00
Camp Highlights will be holding a fund raiser at the South Orange Elks Club on December 9, 2017, from 8 pm to midnight.
It is no secret that our society stumbles toward its acceptance of all people. Along that journey, it is too often the case that divisive and negative messages about LGBT people and their families are broadcast on TV by celebrities, pundits, and politicians. While LGBT people have developed their own communities for support and guidance, what about the more vulnerable among us? How do children cope with hearing messages that their families are “not real” or in some way dangerous?
They envisioned a camp experience where children from LGBT families could meet others from similar families to find support, friendship, and fun.
Please join us this Saturday.
