One thing that many people have noticed in the last few years is a huge separation between gay men and women and lesbians. It seems like everyone is distancing themselves, bars are going men only or women only, etc… It is sort of sad that there is a separation but at the same time it is nice to be in a gay bar and not have straight girls say, why do you have to be gay, can we make out, it’s so nice to not be hit on, and be treated like a human, not an anomaly. The other thing that is changing is that not all gay charities are about AIDS anymore. Although there is a huge battle to be fought with HIV AIDS and that is the first and foremost cause I fight for, then Animal Shelters and Abuse and then Breast Cancer.
A couple years ago I walked in the Susan G Komen 60 mile 3 day breast cancer walk and breast cancer research took on a whole new meaning. Anyways, with that said, I got an invite from a gay male friend who decided that instead of doing an AIDS fundraiser, he was putting on a fundraiser for Breast Cancer research. Because I thought it was awesome that he crossed a line and decided to do something great for women and not just lesbian women, as well as men since breast cancer can attack men to, I wanted to post the event here and invite anyone in DC to attend his Cosmos for a Cure Breast Cancer Research Fundraising event.
Not only do I love the name Cosmos for a Cure but how could you not love having a social event about Boobies, Babes and Pink Drinks for Breast Cancer. If you’re in Washington DC this Thursday and want to have a Pink Cosmo and help raise some money to fight Breat Cancer, show up to the event. This is sure to be a fabulous time.
This Thursday (April 22, 2010) from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m., Lima Restaurant and Lounge is hosting a happy hour to support breast cancer research. As part of the course requirements for my leadership class (last semester!!!), I am organizing the event, “Cosmos for the Cure,” and encourage each of you to stop in, drink pink and raise a glass in support those who are battling breast cancer. Proceeds from the event will go to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Research.
The obligation is minimal. A $10 donation is requested (not required) and also we’ve arranged for a special pink cosmo that will benefit this important cause.
Lima Lounge is located at 1401 K Street and in close proximity to the McPherson metro station on the blue and orange lines.
