Arlington's Sweet Sunday

AGLA hosts Sept. 8 ice-cream social and charity drive

The Arlington Gay & Lesbian Alliance (AGLA) will host an ice-cream social tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 8, at the Aurora Hills Community Center, at 735 18th St. South, in Arlington.

This year’s event begins at 3 p.m. with a firehouse tour, followed by the social at 3:30. Admission is free for AGLA members, while the suggested donation for non-members is $10. Attendees will also have the opportunity to win tickets to see singer Ani DiFranco at D.C.’s 9:30 Club Nov. 5.

As part of an ongoing community service project, the LGBT advocacy group is also asking attendees to bring unused travel-sized soaps, shampoos, lotions and other toiletries to donate to A-SPAN, an organization providing services to Arlington’s homeless population. AGLA will also be accepting donations of unused, nonperishable food items for the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), which provides supplemental groceries to low-income people in need.
