Don't Miss Philly4Pulse, Philadelphia's Massive Citywide Benefit for Orlando, July 21

On Thursday, July 21, bars all over the Gayborhood/Washington Square West will come together in support of those affected by the June 12 shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. Each venue will be hosting their own related theme night, party, or activity in an effort to raise money to donate to the victims and their families. Guest bartenders will be in attendance, including senators, councilmen and women, professional athletes, and bartenders from Pulse.

A $10 donation gets you a VIP pass to all the parties in the Gayborhood. Here’s a taste of what this massive party is going to have in store:

The massive nightclub known for its rooftop tiki bar and multiple levels recently announced they’ve already raised $10,000 for the victims and staff of Pulse. On Thursday, they will be hosting a one-night-only 18 to enter dance party and drag show with RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Roxxxy Andrews and more.
