Join us at Our Largest Annual Holiday Fundraiser and Toy Drive!
On December 14th, 2019 from 7pm - 10pm, come and support DVLF's 26 years of LGBTQ+ empowerment at this year's Tinsel and 'Tinis themed Holiday TOY Drive while we celebrate the diversity of our community at the African American Museum in Philadelphia.
Our annual TOY Drive has become a premier LGBTQ+ holiday gathering in the Greater Philadelphia region, where LGBTQ+ community members come together to share holiday spirit and celebrate the progress we’ve made as a community. Last year’s event brought more than 250 together for an unforgettable night of fun, laughter and community support!
The event will take place at the African American Museum in Philadelphia, the first institution built by a major United States city to house and interpret the life and work of African Americans.
The event includes an open bar with a specialty martini, hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction, our 2019-2020 LGBTQ+ Emerging Needs grant checks presentation, music by DJ Carl Michaels (who has been making Philly’s LGBTQ+ community dance for 20+ years), and access to the museum's gallery spaces for attendees to celebrate the history, heritage and culture of African Americans.
Your attendance and generous contribution to this timeless event will help amplify our efforts to empower and advance the LGBTQ+ community through grant-making, scholarships, advocacy, community leadership development and education.
