2018 HRC Western New York Dinner

2018 HRC Western New York Dinner

BE PART OF HRC AND WNY HISTORY AT THE INAUGURAL HRC WESTERN NY DINNER!

The Human Rights Campaign is the largest LGBTQ organization in the United States that effectively mobilizes grassroots action in diverse communities, lobbies Congress, invests strategically to elect fair-minded public officials, and increases public understanding through innovative education and communication strategies.

Join us for an amazing evening!

 

CORPORATE EQUALITY HONOREE

The Human Rights Campaign is proud to announce that we will honor Xerox with the HRC Corporate Equality Award at the upcoming dinner. This award recognizes the outstanding efforts of companies that dedicate time, energy, spirit and whole-hearted commitment to better the lives of LGBTQ people.

Xerox was one of the original 13 corporations to score 100% on the HRC Corporate Equality Index. And the company has consistently supported LGBTQ equality before the Supreme Court and in numerous public policy debates at both state and national levels. And this year marks the 30th Anniversary of Xerox’s LGBT Employee Resource Group, GALAXe.

 

BECOME A TABLE CAPTAIN - INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

The backbone of ensuring a successful, well-attended Dinner each year are our Table Captains. As the official recruiters and promotors for the Dinner, we partner with our Table Captains to help spread the word about the work of HRC in order to spend an inspirational evening surrounded by friends, family and colleagues in the name of equality. Any individual, partners/couple, affinity group, or charity group can serve as a Table Captain.

Each table can seat a maximum of 10 guests. Contact us today to sign up to be a Table Captain, and start putting together your guest-list. Remember, Table Captains are not financially obligated to fill the table. As a "thank you" for helping support the drive for equality, Table Captains are listed in Dinner advertisements, invitations and program books.

To sign up to become a Table Captain, please email tablecaptains2.hrcwnydinner@gmail.com

Sponsorship includes tickets, visibility and marketing opportunities to showcase your company’s commitment to equality.

DONATE TO THE SILENT AUCTION

One of the most exciting parts of the evening is a Silent Auction, where attendees bid against one another for donated items, gift certificates, vacation packages and more.  Donating to the Silent Auction is another great way to show your support for the LGBTQ community and HRC.
