Do your part to support the local LGBTQ+ community during the Persad Center’s annual benefit auction Art for Change at the Westin Convention Center. Bid on more than 200 donated works of art and gift baskets during verbal and silent auctions. There will also be an open bar and food by over a dozen local vendors. VIP guests will enjoy a light supper by the Italian restaurant, Girasole, as well as other privileges, such as early bidding. Every purchase will go toward Persad Center's counseling and support services to the LGBTQ+ community and those impacted by HIV/AIDS.
