(PRESS RELEASE)_(Fort Lauderdale, FL – September 8, 2023) Robert Kesten, Executive Director of the Stonewall National Museum Archives & Library, today invited friends and supporters to a special Back to the Drive fundraiser headlined by Grammy, Emmy and two-time Tony Award winner BILLY PORTER. Filled with music, dancing, an open bar and nonstop food, this fun, feel-good and glittery event will be held at The Venue, 2345 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors, from 6 to 9 pm on Thursday, September 21.
Tickets start at $200 per person and are available for purchase online at https://stonewall-museum.org/snep-fundraiser/.
“All profit from this memorable event will support the Stonewall National Education Program (SNEP), which ensures our most marginalized students have a safe and welcoming school environment, and that our history and culture are taught,” says Kesten. “When books and education are under threat in a growing number of states and regions across the USA and with Black and LGBTQIA+ history and culture under specific attack—including right here in Florida!—who is better to stand up and call it out than the always brilliant and ever brave Billy Porter.”
Sponsors for Back to the Drive with BILLY PORTER include AFT, Comcast, NEA, NSU Florida, OutClique, and The Windhover Foundation.
