This Pride Month, Philadelphians can support the local LGBTQ community throughout the month of June by purchasing colorful cocktails at 11 bars and restaurants around the city.
FCM Home, which operates locations like Liberty Point, Morgan’s Pier and Craft Hall, hosts the Cocktails for a Cause fundraiser for Pride Month. For every specialty drink sold, the restaurant group donates $1 to LGBTQ organizations, including Attic Youth Center, William Way LGBT Community Center, Philly Asian Queer and Galaei.

The month-long promotion allows drinkers to “drink the rainbow”, with a different colored drink at each of FCM’s locations. Although the promotion runs from June 1-30, the real celebration begins with a Pride Party and Launch Event at Liberty Point on June 9 from 5-8 p.m.
The Philadelphia Flyers and Flyers Charities are teaming up with FCM Hospitality for Cocktails for a Cause and will be celebrating. Gritty is also set to make an appearance at 6 p.m.
“When we first heard about Cocktails for a Cause, we were excited to get involved and help support the local LGBTQ+ organizations that do so much for our city,” said Valerie Camillo, President of Business Operations for Flyers. “The Flyers belong to everyone in the city of Philadelphia, and especially during Pride Month, we want to send a clear message that we support the LGBTQ+ community.”
As part of the fundraising effort, Flyers Charities will match up to $10,000 in donations from the sale of Flyers Rowdy’ Rita drink, Liberty Point’s Pride of the Month drink. The launch party is the only event to feature all 11 Pride Month cocktails.
The party is free and open to the public. Anyone under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
