Rosie O’Donnell Makes Huge Donation To Hudson Valley LGBTQ Pride House
Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul and Nyack resident Rosie O'Donnell came to town on Wednesday to donate a huge sum of money to help out the area's LGBTQ community.
The former Nyack Elks' Club building is being redeveloped into a future Pride House. Hochul came in with a check for $250,000 and called the upcoming center a place of freedom, love, and diversity.
The county believes that the Pride House will become a centerpiece of the town and a gathering place for the community. After Hochul's check was presented, O'Donnell pledged even more funding herself.
This seems like a great idea and will hopefully be beneficial for anyone who needs something like this in the area. And it's encouraging that the town is putting so much behind the development of this new building.
Of course, O'Donnell had to get a few last words in about her rival Donald Trump before she left, ending the event by saying, "Peace out. Fight Trump. Resistance. Goodbye."
