First Annual Pride Luminaries Brunch A Fantastic Success
On Sunday, June 17, NGLCCNY kicked off Pride Week by co-hosting the first annual Pride Luminaries Brunch in partnership with NYC Pride. The brunch filled a rooftop with accomplished LGBT business owners and professionals. When NYC Pride invited NGLCCNY to co-host the event everything was set – except the work of inviting guests. Naturally when it came to inviting the LGBT business and professional community, NGLCCNY was the place to call.
Jack Osborn, Chair of the Legal Industry Council, jumped at the opportunity to promote the Luminaries event. He and Tim Wirch created a team to dial Chamber members and other personal friends. Within a week the event was completely sold out.
New York Life Insurance, an NGLCCNY Bronze Corporate Partner, sponsored the brunch along with The Art of Shaving, Barefoot Wine and HSBC. More than two-hundred people attended the brunch on the rooftop at Mondrian Soho and enjoyed brilliant views of Manhattan’s Uptown and Downtown skylines. It was a fun and festive opening to Pride Week, with plenty of networking and a heavy exchange of business cards.
