About the Black Tie Dinner

Black Tie Dinner, Inc. holds its yearly event to spotlight awareness for contemporary GLBT issues, entertain its attendees with an engaging program, and raise funds in support of gay and lesbian organizations. Since 1982, the fundraising dinner and the community support it receives have grown exponentially. Every year since its inception, the Black Tie Dinner board has chosen local beneficiaries, in addition to the Human Rights campaign Foundation, to receive generous donations which aid local and national supportive services for the GLBT community.
