Hudson Pride Foundation Makes Big Plans for June
Last year, the newly formed Hudson Pride Foundation organized its first annual parade in less than six weeks. The organization has been making plans for this year’s pride festival ever since, and Peter Frank hosted a fundraiser at his beautiful Hudson house last weekend to recruit sponsors and sell early tickets for the weekend’s activities, including two Hudson River cruises on June 17; a parade and rally on June 18 followed by a dance party from 5 p.m. - 2 a.m. at Club Helsinki; and a Family Pride festival on Warren Street on June 19 beginning at noon.
