Cocktails for a Cause

Executive Director of PhillyGayCalendar

Philadelphia largest and most stunning outdoor and indoor restaurants and bars will celebrate June as Philly Gay Pride Month with a month-long celebration! FCM Hospitality and owner Avram Hornik announce that Lola’s Garden, Juno, Parks on Tap (two  locations), Morgan’s Pier, Harper’s Garden, Craft Hall, The Garden at Cherry Street Pier and Rosy’s Taco Bar will all work in unison to help raise funds for LGBTQ Philadelphia-based charities through Gay Pride Month Cocktails for a Cause.

All eight locations will feature a special-colored cocktail to match the eight colors in the Philly-specific and inclusive rainbow flag and will raise money for four different charities. One dollar from all eight cocktails during the 30 days of June will go to support William Way LGBT Community Center, Attic Youth Center, Philly Asian Queer, and Galaei. This stance in social solidarity hopes to shine a light on the various communities that the celebration of National Pride month helps represent, being mindful to include all groups that help make Philadelphia the amazing, diverse community it is. FCM Hospitality will compile donations from all venues and equally divide them between the organizations which were selected for their dedicated work and ongoing efforts to focus on intersectional populations. 

“FCM Hospitality is proud to celebrate Gay Pride Month in Philadelphia with Cocktails for a Cause. With the pandemic diminishing the Pride celebration last year, it was more important than ever that local businesses step up to support our region’s LGBTQ community and the non-profit organizations that were hardest hit during the pandemic. We are excited to debut this new program and support four worth-while charities that are doing amazing work in our community. We are so dedicated to this that we are debuting this new program for the entire month and at eight of our largest properties.”
