NYC LGBT Community Center Launches Auction, Honors Hillary Clinton

By Eliza Jordan

April 12, 2017

In 1983, the New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center (The Center) originated to empower people to live authentic, healthy, and successful lives. Through celebrating diversity and advocating for justice and equal opportunity for the LGBT community, The Center is continuing its support with a benefit auction by Paddle8. The auction is timed to coincide with the approaching annual Center Dinner on April 20 that will honor Hillary Clinton with The Center’s Trailblazer Award for her ongoing efforts for LGBT rights. The benefit—live on Paddle8’s website now through April 24—is auctioning off more than 20 works by artists like Alex Katz, Richard Prince, Deborah Kass, Katherine Bernhardt, Nicole Eisenman, and Hanna Linden.

Each year, The Center Dinner brings together over 800 influencers and supporters of the LGBT community to raise funds for its services. With an emphasis on supporting youth programs, the organization also provides substance use treatment and prevention, leadership and employment opportunities, and HIV/AIDS prevention and education.
