As football fans gear up for the big game, Los Angeles residents prepare to do something they excel at: raise money for a good cause. OUT@NBCUniversal, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Straight Ally Employee Alliance at the award-winning media behemoth, is teaming up with Rain Nightclub, the Valleys first upscale gay nightclub, to score a touchdown for the new OUTSET Film Mentoring Program.

"Our relationship with the community is very important to us, and we couldnt be more thrilled to be hosting this event," says Rain Nightclub proprietor Mathieu McBee. "Rain is a brand new nightclub, and we want our patrons to know that we are about giving back to the community that supports us." McBee, and his business partner Maurice Safizadeh, say they plan to make Rain Nightclub a year-round home to charitable events like this one.

LifeWorks, the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's development and mentoring program for LGBTQ youth, has partnered with OUTFEST (an organization dedicated to showcasing, nurturing and preserving LGBT film images and artistry) to create OUTSET, a short film program which allows small groups of LGBTQ youth from the LifeWorks program to shoot, edit and screen their own short films. The young people who have been selected to participate in this innovative, new program will create a short film that will be screened at the Fusion Film Festival in March and again at the Outfest Film Festival in July. The OUTSET classes are taught by industry professionals who provide youth hands-on tools to write, shoot and edit their own films. Additional information on this program can be found at www.modelsofpride.org/lifeworks.

Tickets to this fundraising event can be purchased in advance at www.lagaycenter.org/superbowl. A donation of $10 (advance purchase) or $15 (at the door) is requested. Bottle service or group reservations can be made by contacted Rain Nightclub directly at mb@rain-la.com or 323-863-3443. Doors open at 2pm for pre-game festivities, with kick-off at 3:30pm. Rain Nightclub will host a Madonna Madness buffet and bar during the Madonna Halftime Show and also screen the premiere of NBCs The Voice immediately following the game.
