Capital One Bank presented a $4,000 check to the Long Island GLBT Services Network in support of the annual Long Island Pride festival and local youth programming designed to prevent GLBT youth suicide.

Capital One Bank's donation helps The Network operate Long Island Pride, the annual cultural celebration for Long Island's GLBT community that increases visibility and builds community. The funding will also help one of The Network's organizations – Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY) - to prevent suicide, through its Friday night program for GLBT youth called "OUTlet." OUTlet is held each Friday night at The Center at Bay Shore to provide GLBT youth and their friends a safe and substance-free space, and ultimately to prevent suicide.

"As a local bank invested in the Long Island community, Capital One Bank is proud to support the annual Long Island Pride festival and to help strengthen LIGALY's efforts to provide local youth a safe space that fosters a greater sense of community and confidence and helps to prevent teen suicide," says John Ottino, a Capital One Branch Manager and Network Board Member.

The Long Island GLBT Services Network extends its gratitude to Capital One Bank and appreciates the financial assistance and the partnership built over several years.
