Bruce T. Sloane hosted the 4th Annual Summer Hampton’s LIVE OUT LOUD Fundraiser at his waterfront home in East Hampton’s Grace Estate, where guests enjoyed the magnificent sunset over the Northwest Harbor during cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and the outstanding silent action.
A delicious dinner for special guests catered and donated by Luis and Virginia of Michaels at Maidstone Restaurant followed at 8:30. The event was the best yet and most successful to benefit LIVE OUT LOUD, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and empowering LGBT youth by connecting them with successful LGBT role models.
Neo Political Cowgirls
The evening happen to coincide with founder Leo Preziosi’s birthday and after dinner Sir Ari Gold sang at Bruce’s request and surprised Leo with his unique rendition of Happy Birthday. Kate Mueth’s dance company “Neo Political Cowgirls” also performed a piece from their upcoming immersive theater performance called “Eve” earlier in the evening. A very special thanks goes out to all of the volunteers, Hector Rojas the event planner, Paul Goerz who provided the floral arrangements and to Lisa Freedman who spearheaded the PR to a new level and for everyone making this a Pride for everyone to remember.
