The Hetrick-Martin Institute, home to NYC’s acclaimed Harvey Milk High School, is back with their annual autumnal soiree celebrating the bounty of the Hudson Valley and raising money for at-risk LGBTQ youth.  For those of you that remember last year’s event, there’s no better – and no swankier – way to spend a fall Saturday in the Valley.

Moving the party to the east side of the river this year, New Yorkers and Hudson Valley residents will come together to celebrate the start of a new school year – and to acknowledge support for the over 1,500 LGBTQ youth who come to HMI in search of a better life and a brighter future. They’ll have cocktails, hors d’oeuvre, an auction, some surprise entertainment – and the opportunity to give these young people the lifesaving services and programs they so desperately need.  The event will be hosted at the Red Hook home of Harlan Bratcher & Toby Usnik with an after-party & dinner to follow at the fabulous Gigi Market.

Join them Saturday, September 25th from 2:00 – 6:00 (after-party following) for this sure-to-be unforgettable event.  For more information about Fall Fest 2010, HMI, and getting your tickets in advance, visit their website.
