Fall Gala: Giving Thanks!

October was so full of other wonderful events we were unable to hold our annual National Coming Out Day Gala and Awards Presentation without conflicting with numerous community partners. This year, we will be holding a Fall Gala on November 15 from 6pm to 9pm at the Mint Lounge, themed Giving Thanks!

2014 has been such a banner year for the LGBTQ community nationwide. There is so much to be thankful for, even locally. Join us on November 15 as we share what we are all thankful for, before Thanksgiving! There will be a special program at 7:30pm recognizing many of the people and things are are most thankful for this year.

The annual gala is one of The Tree’s main fundraisers. This year’s gala is especially important as funds will be used as the seed money to establish a new facility in the coming months. All funds from ticket sales and the silent auction will go directly towards ensuring our ability to secure a new home.

Tickets – $30 General Admission; $25 Seniors, Students and Veterans

To buy tickets, select one of the following:
