‘Tis the season of Annual Awards and Chicken Dinners!
Unfortunately, we are also still battling hopefully the final stages of a global pandemic. While the Leonard-Litz team was looking forward to cutting a rug with some of our local community partners, we also understand and appreciate the need to celebrate in a way that prioritizes everyone’s safety. After more than 18 months of societal upheaval that we all hoped would be over by now, many of us are still longing for some sense of hope. But we also know that it is precisely when things feel hopeless that we must rally together as a community, especially for the sake of our most vulnerable members. We are grateful to the many nonprofit organizations and their staffs for being there when our community needs them most, and even though we had to settle for another scaled back or virtual gala season, we are honored to stand by their side in the ongoing fight for equality and justice for all LGBTQ+ people. No one is free until everyone is free.
Until then, at least we have pictures and memories!

On behalf of Jeff, Andrew, Colin, and everyone at the Leonard-Litz Foundation, Elliot and Roger send love and appreciation to all the nonprofit organizations doing their best to fund their programs and services in an extremely difficult and challenging time. We salute you!
