WITH ‘UNLOCK ME’ SINGLES MIXER AT LESBIAN OWNED THE DALLOWAY
MAD MILDRED PARTNERS PRESENTS “UNLOCK ME” SINGLES MIXER, WHILE BRINGING AWARENESS TO THE ALI FORNEY CENTER AND HOMELESS LGBTQ YOUTH
March 22, 2013, New York, NY – MadMildred celebrates the launch of their new blog, www.MadMildred.com with the ‘Unlock Me’ singles mixer at The Dalloway on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 starting at 7pm benefiting The Ali Forney Center (AFC), a nonprofit shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth in New York City.
MadMildred is a blog where one can speak their mind freely. “I want to give women a platform to vent and share stories,” says Mildred, about offering women a safe place to escape in her new blog. MadMildred believes in empowering women through self-expression and instilling confidence through future workshops and upcoming support groups- specifically in the LGBTQ community.
The ‘Unlock Me’ event will highlight The Ali Forney Center to bring awareness to the homeless LGBTQ youth. “My older sister as a teenager was kicked out of our house after announcing she was gay,” says Mildred on why the AFC is a good fit. “A place like the Ali Forney Center would have been a great place for her to turn to.” The AFC provides shelter as well as comprehensive healthcare services to homeless LGBTQ youth throughout the New York City area. MadMildred will have a box set up for collecting donations as well as brochures with more information at the event.
The ‘Unlock Me’ mixer will be using the lock & key theme in which half the guests will get a lock and the other half get a key. Patrons get to ‘unlock’ each other as they mingle. “It’ll serve as a great ice breaker!” adds Mildred. There will be interactive activities with a few giveaways. The event is taking place at The Dalloway located on 525 Broome Street, New York, NY 10013. Starting at 7pm, the ‘Unlock Me’ singles mixer event is FREE.
The Ali Forney Center is the nation's largest and most comprehensive organization dedicated to homeless LGBTQ youth. By rescuing kids from the dangers of the streets and placing them into safe, homelike environments, AFC provides homeless LGBTQ youths, aged 16-24, with the support and services they need to escape the streets and begin to live healthy and independent lives.

The Dalloway was born out of a desire to create a venue with a strong female team that is open to everyone, but especially providing the LGBT community with a place that feels like home. Whether looking to meet new people or sit and enjoy cocktails, the Dalloway provides a contrast that meets all expectations and creates an open platform for everyone who enjoys good food and well-stocked bars.

MadMildred believes in empowering women by instilling confidence through future workshops and support groups- specifically in the LGBT community. One creative outlet is the MadMildred venting blog-encouraging women to express themselves by voicing their opinions while building a healthy self-esteem. http://www.madmildred.com
