The Gay Straight Alliance student club at Herkimer County Community College recently hosted a benefit with a DJ and food to raise funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Pictured from left: GSA President Benjamin Hall (Herkimer), LaRae Egelston (Munnsville), David Nitto (Mount Vision), Jessa Montclair (Munnsville) and Alyssa Caserta (Lindenhurst). The mission of this club is to work toward an accepting environment for all people of any sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, nationality, color, creed, religious belief or age. Members raise awareness about diversity in hopes of decreasing discrimination and/or violence.
