This event, which is a fundraiser for Baltimore Pride, kicks off the Pride Festival weekend (June 18-19). Guests can enjoy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, DJ, and dancing. This year’s silent auction offers a chance to bid on tickets to the Baltimore Grand Prix, as well as a night and dinner at the new Hotel Monaco. All guests will receive gift bags with free goodies.
“Twilight on the Terrace is not only a good time, but it’s also an excellent networking opportunity—LGBT community members and supporters are always in attendance, as well as many local professionals,” said GLCCB Board Secretary Kelly McClain.
Guests can mingle both inside Gertrude’s restaurant and outside in the sculpture garden.
“Twilight is an enjoyable occasion for everyone,” said GLCCB Board President Trevor Ankeny, “It is a great way to start off the Pride Festival weekend, and it appeals to a segment of the population that may not be able to come out to the Block Party and Festival on Saturday and Sunday.”
But while Twilight lets guests relax and eat amidst both art and nature, the sunset and the music often encourage dancing as the evening progresses.
“My favorite part of the evening is the conversion of a summer day to a summer night,” said Ankeny. “As the sun sets and the candles are lit, the event inevitably transforms from a cocktail party to nighttime party.”
Tickets can be purchased through BrownPaperTickets.com. For more information visit BaltimorePride.org or the GLCCB Facebook page.
