The WeHo landmark is currently in the running to be named “BEST GAY BAR IN THE WORLD” as part of LOGO TV’s first ever TripOutGayTravel.com Travel Awards, honoring the world’s favorite LGBT travel destinations. The Abbey is one of only two nominees located in all of North America. Online voting at www.TripOutGayTravel.com happens now through September 28, with winners announced November 2, 2009.
According to Abbey President and Founder David Cooley, “The nomination of course is an honor, but giving back is so important to us and our yearly holiday themed event aiding Children’s Hospital L.A. taps into the generosity of the West Hollywood community.” Adding, “We look forward to everyone celebrating in our ‘Winter Wonderland Christmas in September’ on Thursday the 24th.”
The toys will be delivered the following day to the children at the hospital.
