Saturday, November 10, 2018


Thank you!
This morning, my heart is still smiling. Despite the tears I felt come on when honoring our dear friend Dick Haskamp last night, I can't help but feel overwhelmed by the loving embrace of this community. I think I woke up with a glow of gratitude and appreciation for your presence, attention, and generosity.
To be able to, in one night, pay tribute to a pioneer of the gay community in Palm Springs, while celebrating and uplifting the work of the new generation of LGBTQ young pioneers was stirring, and a perfect embodiment of our mission to help LGBTQ people along their way.
Saying thank you is not enough. Your existence, your connection to our community, and your partnership have brought us where we are today. Giving you all our gratitude for being an ambassador to The Center. We can't wait to see what's in store for our community for the months and years to come.
Mike Thompson
