On June 9, 2024 the Sands New York team joined the LGBT Network to celebrate PRIDE on Long Island. The event, held annually in Huntington, drew in more people than ever before making it the largest Long Island Parade EVER, according to organizers.  Thousands turned out to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and to enjoy a variety of vendor booths, live music, food trucks, games and entertainment, and fun for everyone. 

“Sands has a proud history of supporting, employing and welcoming those within the LGBTQ+ community, and we are extremely proud to partner with the LGBT Network to celebrate June as PRIDE month,” said Tracey Edwards, Senior Vice President and Corporate Social Responsibility Officer for Sands New York.  “If built, the proposed Sands New York project will carry on our legacy of equity and opportunity – and it will be a space where every Long Islander can feel safe and free to be their full authentic selves.”

Sands was a platinum sponsor of the event and managed several booths within the festival area, where they spoke to festival-goers and handed out water bottles, frisbees and lip balm.
