Get Centered AND Mixed Up!

One of the best attended ongoing mixers here in the desert is the monthly edition of The Center Social, which rotates locations, and brings together over 200 friends and supporters of The LGBT Community Center of the Desert.  This month's social takes place Wednesday, April 26, on the patio at Eight4Nine Restaurant & Lounge from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.

Heads up though, folks tend to arrive early and stay late.  There will be four bartenders and Happy Hour prices, plus complimentary lite bites.  We'll see you there.  In the meantime, enjoy this highlight real of the recent annual Major Donor appreciation brunch thrown by The Center, this year with a Luau theme.
