This year’s event will feature a Red Carpet entrance leading attendees into an atmosphere reminiscent of a 1940s Supper Club. The ambience in the VIP lounge will have the feel of a classic lounge like the Club El Morocco of 1940s New York City. A Standards Band, featuring lead vocalist Lindsay Bretz, will delight the crowd with sounds from the era. Soft lighting, graceful flowers, and sensual music in a hazy atmosphere will transform the Great American Hall at the Hershey Lodge into an elegant 1940s Supper Club experience.

The VIP Reception will begin at 6:30. The Classic Reception will begin at 7:00 in the Lobby of the Great American Hall. Dinner is scheduled for 8:00 followed by dancing to the sounds of a high energy DJ until 1:00 a.m. The entire evening will include fine dining, great wine, and FABulous music. It promises to transport you back to a time when clubbing was the ultimate experience!

Mike Greenwald, formerly of WITF, will emcee the program for the evening. It will include testimonials from participants involved with Common Roads, the youth programming arm of the Center. The highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the 2010 FAB Award honoring those who have made important contributions to the economic, political, cultural, spiritual and social progress of LGBT causes within our region.
