Dear Friends,

Like all of us, HRC has continued to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation around the country. The safety and well-being of our community and supporters is always our top priority. 

HRC has decided to cancel all events between now and April 4. This includes 3 of HRC's significant fundraising dinners around the county in the coming weeks: Nashville on March 14, Los Angeles on March 28 and Houston on April 4. 

As someone who purchased a ticket to our Houston Dinner, we are happy to process a refund if you wish. Please email us at tablecaptain@hrc.org by March 31st, 2020 to notify us. Given the magnitude of three large scale cancellations, it might take us a few days to process refund requests. We sincerely appreciate your patience, and we look forward to holding events in the community soon. 

We hope you may consider counting your payment as a donation to HRC, as our mission has never been more clear. 

We greatly appreciate your support of the work that we do to advance equality and hope you will continue to stick with us through this difficult time. We have so much to do between now and election day and your support helps make that happen. 

Please be safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Todd Litton, Jenni Tranweaver & Rey Ocanas

END OF THE EVENING:

Auction checkout will be available outside the ballroom, so you can pick up your items and settle payment as needed. Feel free to take a program book and any other materials from the table, so you know how to get in touch with us and as a memento for the evening.

DINNER PROGRAM:

While seated during your dinner, you can continue to monitor your favorite auction items and even see what items don't have bids through BidPal. During the first half of the program, before we break for dinner entrée service, you'll hear about HRC's programs and work to advance equality - locally, in your state, in the country, and around the world. You'll also hear a personal story of how HRC's work has made a difference in their lives.
