Garden State Equality (GSE) will host its second annual Equality Ball on June 1, 2018 at The Asbury Hotel, in the all-new Asbury Lanes. This year’s special guest will be New Jersey Governor, Phil Murphy. Tickets and corporate sponsorship opportunities are still available. And seating is limited, with tickets selling quickly.

The Equality Ball is GSE’s premier event and largest annual fundraiser. Last year, hundreds of individuals attended, and GSE raised tens of thousands of dollars. This year’s ball is expected to have even more corporate and community leaders in attendance.

“Our Annual Equality Ball is critical to supporting programs, reaching more individuals, and vastly improving the lives of LGBT residents in the Garden State,” said Christian Fuscarino, the Executive Director of GSE. Funds raised at this year’s event will mainly support GSE’s ongoing work in the areas of education, youth development, and health advocacy.

The Equality Ball 2018 will begin with cocktails at 6pm, shift to dinner and programs at 7pm, and then some dancing at 9pm.
