Chicago set for long evening of dinner and entertainment

October 27, 2013 by  

The annual Human Rights Campaign’s fundraising gala dinner and auction will be taking place in Chicago in just a few weeks.

Black tie is optional at this event, which is set to feature a silent auction, cocktail reception, dinner, guest speakers, and two after parties. Those who purchase VIP tickets get to attend an earlier private reception, and a number of awards will also be presented during the evening.

Among the guest speakers to appear at the gala will be Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign. Included in the awards to be handed out are Ally for Equality, Community Equality, and Corporate Equality. After the awards presentation, an after party will feature the music of Corey Stanford. The entertainment does not stop there, as an “after-after party” is also set to be held at a different location.

Business owners will have many opportunities to support this event; they can donate items to the auctions or can purchase advertisements in the program guide that everyone will receive. Chicago printing companies have likely provided printed items, such as invitations and the program booklet.

The Human Rights Campaign gala dinner and auction is being held at The Fairmont on November 16, starting at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $225 or $85 for Federal Club members and VIP tickets are $350 or $165 for members.

The VIP cocktail reception will take place from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm that day, and the “after-after party” is taking place at the Downtown Bar and Lounge beginning at 11:00 pm. For more information, contact Marisa McCabe at 312-909-0968.
