LCCI Empire Region Receives an All Star Award From LIGLFF

by Roger on Nov.20, 2014, under Club News


Bill Writes:
Recently, Empire Car Club was the recipient of the prestigious All Star Award at the 17th Annual Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (LIGLFF).

Each year, the LIGLFF organization bestows this honor upon a Long Island community group that continuously supports awareness and acceptance of the LGBT community and has devoted time and experience to the success of the Long Island Gay & Lesbian Film Festival throughout the year. In August of 2013 and 2014, Empire Car Club has served as co-sponsor of LIGLFF’s summer program, Men’s Shorts Movie Night.

Many of us have attended this fun evening where we display our classic cars outside Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, LI – the host theater that sponsors all the LIGLFF programs. Such events allow us to give back to the community while providing exposure to moviegoers who may not be familiar with our organization and it has served as a clever way to recruit new club members. All of us within the membership of Empire Car Club are thrilled and honored to accept our very first Long Island LGBT community award.

2014 Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival November 7th-10th

by Roger on Nov.05, 2014, under Upcoming Event

It is with great pleasure to announce that the Empire Region has been chosen for the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (LIGLFF) All-Star Award this year! This is a great honor in that there are many people/groups that participate with the LIGLFF during the year. In the last few years we have co-sponsored some of the “Out At The Movies” events, and had our cars on display in the front of the cinema. They have been very accommodating to us and even offered discounted tickets.

From LIGLFF: “The Long Island Film Festival would like The Empire Region to be their recipient of the All-Star award this year. The award is given to those persons or group that has generously donated their time to the Film Festival and help promote the whole Long Island LGBT Community”

We will be the Sunday Night Community Co-Sponsor of the 17th Annual Film Festival on Sunday November 9th and will be presented with our award at this event.

The movie will be “To Be Takei” at 8:30pm with a 7:45pm reception preceding the film.

All of you Star Trek fans you will want to see this film:

by Roger on Jul.29, 2014, under Outing


Peter Writes:

On Thursday night July 24th we attended the Long Island Film Festival’s (LIFF) “Men’s Hot Shorts Night” at the Huntington Cinema Arts Centre.

I am happy to say that we had an nice mix of classic cars to display and a good participation from our members.

The movies (several shorts), were enjoyable and they had a very nice hot buffet in the outdoor garden after the exhibition, with a DJ and Pina Coladas, all for a discounted price for our members.

The LIFF was very happy that we attended and they offered us discounted prices any time we would like to co-sponsor a film again. It was a lot of fun and I hope to do some more events with them in the near future.

by Roger on Aug.25, 2012, under Outing

On Thursday evening August 23rd the Empire Region hosted the Long Island GLBT Film Festival at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington. It was a well-attended event with over 130 patrons for the film, providing exposure for our club as we had 16 members in attendance with 8 vintage cars on display. Thanks to Sam P. and John P. for doing the 50/50 raffle there was no cost to the club and everyone enjoyed the show and cocktail reception. As always, John P. did an excellent job photographing the event!
