The 18th Annual Twin Cities HRC Gala is on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Minneapolis Convention Center. An evening of dining, dancing and community activism. The attire for the evening is fun formal (black-tie optional).

The Twin Cities Human Rights Campaign Annual Gala Dinner and Auction is an award-winning event held each fall that supports the important work of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). HRC strives to end discrimination against GLBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
This memorable event is attended by over 1,000 people each year and serves as a time for us to celebrate the strides we've made towards equality. Your partnership provides awareness, membership, and funds to fight intolerance.
Hate crimes, work place intolerance, unrecognized military service and marriage... it's time to end discrimination.
