The Gay & Lesbian Community Center (GLCC) of South Florida/Pride Center is proud to announce their 2010 Stars of the Rainbow honorees to be showcased at this year’s annual Stars of the Rainbow fundraising event on Sunday, March 21st at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty Six (2301 SE 17th Street Causeway) from 4 to 6 pm. 2010 marks the Center’s 17th anniversary of providing valued services and programs to the community.

Guests attending this spectacular poolside event will be given the chance to make a difference in our community while gazing at the sunset over South Florida. This year’s theme is “Black & White” and guests are encouraged to wear cocktail-chic black or white attire. In addition to the always emotional Stars of the Rainbow ceremony, guests will be greeted by the sounds of the Delray String Quartet and be delighted by an elegant display of cuisine, fashion and entertainment.

Stars HonoreesWhen asked why the GLCC has changed the Stars of the Rainbow to a 2 hour event, Director of Development Robert Boo said “We are very excited about the new format for Stars this year. Stars of the Rainbow has always been our largest fundraising event for the past 16 years and has transitioned over the years into what it is today. It is very challenging to put on a successful event during these tough economic times. The Hyatt Regency has been an absolute savior for the Center and has been very supportive to ensure we are putting on a beautiful and top-class event. The honorees this year are shining examples to the community and it is an honor to recognize their achievements.”

2010 Stars of the Rainbow Honorees: The honorees represent individuals, businesses and organizations that exemplify the spirit of volunteerism and/or activism. Honorees have represented the LGBT community in a positive light and have supported the efforts of the GLCC/Pride Center.

The GLCC/Pride Center was founded in 1993 by philanthropist and gay pioneer Alan Schubert. Alan recognized the need for a comprehensive program of services to support the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, primarily in Broward County. The GLCC/Pride Center, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was established and now serves as a source for information, education, advocacy and support. It provides a positive environment that fosters personal development and quality of life for those within the community it serves.

GLCC/Pride Center’s mission is to provide a welcoming, safe space—an inclusive home that celebrates, nurtures and empowers the LGBTQ communities and our friends and neighbors in South Florida.
