During the show, organizers also let loose with details of the opening of Lost N Found's new 4,000-square-foot drop in center that will allow the non-profit to better serve homeless LGBT youth. The organization said in March it was close to finding a home for the facility, which was housed in its 13,000 square-foot thrift store on Chantilly Drive off Cheshire Bridge Road. The new center, which Lost N Found hopes to eventually keep open 24 hours a day, is a quick drive from the thrift store.
