LGBT Elder Fund donation made

Last year as many of you may remember as part of boi Di's title as Washington State Ms Leather 2010 she held a few fundraisers with the intent of the monies raised going to a LBGT elder fund.  On October 7th a check for $2596 was presented to SAGE with Senior Services of King County.  We thank our community for donating their hard earned money to LBGT seniors in need.  

SAGE affiliates are building a movement to reduce isolation, improve financial security and enhance the quality of life for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender older adults. Through SAGENet, a national network of affiliates, local leaders draw on the wisdom of their peers to implement programs and services that address the most urgent issues facing LGBT elders—from unemployment, to housing, to LGBT-affirming healthcare and more. They are also creating advocacy initiatives where LGBT elders advocate on their own behalf—at the local, state and federal levels.
PS.  I am late in delivering this message due to internal (exciting) upcoming changes at Seattle Announcements.
