Philadelphia largest and most stunning outdoor and indoor restaurants and bars will celebrate June as Philly Gay Pride Month with a month-long celebration! FCM Hospitality and owner Avram Hornik announce that Lola’s Garden, Juno, Parks on Tap (two  locations), Morgan’s Pier, Harper’s Garden, Craft Hall, The Garden at Cherry Street Pier and Rosy’s Taco Bar will all work in unison to help raise funds for LGBTQ Philadelphia-based charities through Philly Gay Pride Month Cocktails for a Cause.

All eight locations will feature a special-colored cocktail that matches up with the eight colors of the Philadelphia Gay Pride Flag. All eight cocktails to match the eight colors in the Philly-specific and inclusive rainbow flag will raise money for four different charities. One dollar from all eight cocktails during the 30 days of June will go to support William Way LGBT Community Center, Attic Youth Center, Philly Asian Queer and Galaei. This stance in social solidarity hopes to shine light to the various communities that the celebration of national Pride month helps represent, being mindful to include all groups that help make Philadelphia the amazing, diverse community it is. FCM Hospitality will compile donations from all venues and equally divide them between the organizations which were selected for their dedicated work and ongoing efforts to focus on intersectional populations. Additionally, FCM Hospitality will host the first-ever Philly Gay Pride Day at Parks on Tap at Trail’s End on Saturday, June 12, 2021, from 12:00pm to 6:00pm. Details for Parks on Tap are coming soon – save the date!

“FCM Hospitality is proud to celebrate Gay Pride Month in Philadelphia with Cocktails for a Cause,” said Hornik. “With the pandemic diminishing the Pride celebration last year, it was more important than ever that local businesses step up to support our region’s LGBTQ community and the non-profit organizations that were hardest hit during the pandemic. We are excited to debut this new program and support four worth-while charities that are doing amazing work in our community. We are so dedicated to this that we are debuting this new program for the entire month and at eight of our largest properties.”

FCM properties can be found throughout the Philadelphia area, offering the perfect way to experience different tastes and neighborhoods in the spirit of diversity. FCM’s Cocktails for a Cause campaign will run for the duration of Pride Month (June 1st – June 30th).
