CFAWL October Joint Luncheon with CFGALLA
October 13, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Please join us for a special luncheon on October 13, 2017 co-hosted by CFAWL and CFGALLA at the Citrus Club to hear our speaker Barbara Poma, owner of Pulse Night Club, which was established in 2004 as a tribute to her brother John who passed away from HIV/AIDs. Pulse Nightclub is embraced by the global LGBTQ community for the club’s culture of love and providing a venue where gays, lesbians, and their families could be themselves. In the course of operating Pulse Nightclub, Ms. Poma has become a respected human and civil rights advocate. On Sunday, June 12, Pulse Nightclub became the scene of the nation’s worst mass shooting in modern American history. As club owner, Ms. Poma, like the rest of the world, was rocked into a new and unimaginable reality that carried immeasurable loss and hardship. Since the loss of her business, she has shifted her focus on preserving the memory of those who lost their lives, survivors and their loved ones.She now serves as Founder and Executive Director of OnePulse Foundation, Inc. which has been established to oversee a community initiative to create a permanent memorial to Pulse and those who perished, to provide community grants to care for the survivors (including first responders) and victims’ families, to support a educational program to promote amity among all segments of society, and to create and support endowed scholarships for each of the 49 angels.

Luncheon check-in begins at 11:30 a.m., and the luncheon program will begin promptly at Noon.
