Thurs 12/11 6-9pm - Holiday Party and Coat Drive

Boxers NYC, 37 West 20 St (5th/6th)

Celebrate the holidays with lots of new and old friends and help us collect coats for NY Cares. This year we are aiming to break our record for the most coats collected. Plus you get to meet celebs and get a prize for every coat you donate!


* No Cover

* Happy Hour Specials and HUNDREDS of handsome attendees

* COAT DRIVE- Get a FREE GIFT with every coat you donate. We are so pleased to be holding our 8th Annual Big Gay Coat Drive to benefit NY CARES.  We know you still have that big puffy michelin man coat from 2002 and the Toggle coat from 1995 that you will never wear again. So bring them (and every other out of style warm coat that you know in your heart you will not wear this year) to the party and donate them to a good cause. For every coat you donate you will get a free gift from our GRAB BAG of PRIZES.  Also the first 40 to donate a coat get 2 free tickets to MY BIG GAY ITALIAN WEDDING or MY BIG GAY ITALIAN FUNERAL. I am still in the show, so you will get to come and laugh at my hysterical antics if you show up early with a coat. 

* FREE COCKTAILS -Complimentary samples of cocktails from EFFIN Vodka to the first 25 attendees who donate a coat (you must be registered to get the free drink) 

* CELEB ALERT - Meet cast members from My Big Gay Italian Wedding/Funeral at the party including (l-r below) Gabe Bowling, Brandon Goins, BJ Gruber, Matt Gregorio, Chad Kessler, Fred Ross and Anthony Wilkinson.

PRIZES: For every coat your donate, you get a prize from our grab bag of prizes.  Prizes include theater tickets and swag (Special thanks to the following shows for donating tickets and / or swag: Honeymoon in Vegas, Jersey Boys, 50 Shades The Musical, Awesome 80’s Prom, Black Angels over Tuskegee, Circus Now, Disenchanted, Drunk Shakespeare, Going Once Laughing Twice, illuminate, Lennon Though a Glass Onion, My Big Gay Italian Funeral, My Big Gay Italian Wedding, Nevermore, Soul Doctor, Stomp, Tail Spin, The Asphalt Christmas, The Greatest Pirate Holliday Spectacular, Wayra Fuerza Bruta and 54 Below). Special thanks to Sony Red and The Karpel Group for donating CDs. Artists include Idina Menzel, Nicki Minaj and more! Special thanks to Joseph Thomasen and AMENY for donating LOTS of Superhero underwear and sleepwear!

HOW THE PARTY WORKS: Everyone wears a name tag, but instead of putting your name, you put your occupation (it is a networking party after all). The name-tags are also color-coded so you know who is single (in case that is on one's agenda). Regularly attended by hundreds of great guys, this is the one monthly event NYC Gays dare not miss.
