Callen-Lorde Presents: ROAR
Thursday Jun 1 6:00pm-9:00pm in New York
Unleash your Pride party animal at ROAR 2017 at the Central Park Zoo! The unofficial kickoff to NYC Pride since 2001, ROAR features private after-hours access to this iconic New York location, delicious food and drink, an open bar and live entertainment. This year we're thrilled to announce New York based DJ collective Occupy The Disco will be joining us, providing beats that have made their Sunday afternoon residency at Le Bain - Paradisco - the best way to end a weekend for years!

In addition to a picnic feast, we will have a robust silent auction featuring fine art, culinary experiences from New York’s premier restaurants, adventurous travel packages and elegant luxury goods. Stay tuned as we announce our special guests, coming soon!

Tickets start at just $85 and sponsorships come with an array of benefits. Sponsorships provide you or your company with excellent exposure among healthcare leaders, nightlife entertainers, public advocates and elected officials who are committed to LGBTQ healthcare issues. Most importantly, your financial support funds the continuation of Callen-Lorde’s lifesaving mission to provide sensitive, quality health care and related services targeted to New York’s LGBTQ communities — in all their diversity — regardless of ability to pay.

Show your ZOO COLORS at ROAR!
