This annual event celebrates the great strides made for LGBTQ equality across the nation, honoring local leadership excellence, and strengthening our convictions on helping those who still experience profound injustice.
The Human Rights Campaign Chicago Dinner Gala is one of the largest annual LGBT fundraising events in the Midwest. Last year, almost 1,000 people came together as a community to show their support for HRC.
The night will begin with a VIP reception followed by the silent auction then to the main dinner event. The event has an array of speakers each year with past appearances from Governor Pat Quinn, Jim Obergefell, the named plaintiff in the U.S. Supreme Court case Obergefell, et al. v. Hodges, and Michael Sam, former player with the St. Louis Rams. OCTOBER 27, 2O18
