Los Angeles Demonstration Set for Tuesday, April 1st
Supporters of SAVE the BOOM!!! – WE NEED YOU!!!
We need your help next week to appeal to the President and CEO of American International Group (NYSE: AIG) to help convince the Boom Boom Room owner to give us back out landmark gay bar.
SAVE the BOOM!!! www.savetheboom.com has been working for nearly two years to try and convince property owner, Steven Udvar-Hazy to save the landmark gay bar. Mr. Udvar-Hazy heads up International Lease Finance Corporation, a division of AIG. He bought the Boom Boom Room and Coast Inn in which it is located in the fall of 2005. The Boom Boom Room closed after 61 years last September. It had been the oldest gay bar in the Western United States.
We will be releasing a letter to Martin J. Sullivan, the CEO of Mr. Udvar-Hazy’s parent company to ask him to help resolve this situation. As the head of AIG, the world’s largest insurance and financial services company, Mr. Sullivan has the absolute power to conciliate this situation. We are extremely hopeful that he will help save our gay landmark in Laguna Beach.
This will be a fun, friendly, lunch-time demonstration in Century City. We will all meet at 12:00 noon in front of the AIG Tower, 1999 Avenue of the Stars (corner of Avenue of the Stars & Constellation Blvd. -- see flyer attached and below). Plenty of free parking in the Westfield Mall right behind the AIG Tower.
We will have music, food and surprises. Thank you very much!
PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST!!!
