Our signature Pride gala, the 2018 Vision Awards took place on Thursday, June 14, at Tribeca Rooftop in New York City. The event, which featured a rooftop reception with stunning views, fine dining, a moving musical performance, and the marquee awards, beautifully celebrated the diversity, spirit, and power of our community. And, we raised over $200,000 to advance Stonewall's work of mobilizing resources for LGBTQ rights, freedom, and justice! Vision's success will fuel a continued legacy that includes thousands of supporters, over 2,500 grants and scholarships, and $19 million awarded to hundreds of vital nonprofits. Thanks to our sponsors, guests, and all who supported our efforts to make this the best year yet.
Looking forward to the 2019 Vision Awards!
