Former D.C. Council member Carol Schwartz is inviting members of the LGBT community to join supporters of the Metro D.C. Chapter of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) for a 30th Anniversary fundraising party for the group at her Northwest D.C. home on Oct. 1.
Joining Schwartz in organizing the event are Ike Leggett, the Montgomery County executive; and Jay Fisette, vice chair of the Arlington County Board, who’s gay. The three serve as regional co-chairs of Metro D.C. PFLAG.
“This has been a stalwart organization for 30 years starting before it was fashionable to support LGBT causes,” Schwartz told the Blade.
The event is scheduled to take place Tuesday, Oct. 1, between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Schwartz residence at 2029 Connecticut Ave., N.W. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased in advance online at http://www.pflagdc.org/support-us/make-a-donation or by calling Tracy at (202) 638-3852.
