While COVID-19 has brought much of the world to a halt, our work continues. From fighting government-sanctioned attacks on our community to curating a robust virtual “hub” for LGBTQ+ families to connect, learn, and have fun while staying at home, we have doubled down on our promise to be there for families like yours—no matter what.
And that’s something to celebrate!
Let The Games Begin!
Why wait until June 18 when we can start the fun NOW!
Even though we’re apart, we hope you see this gala as an opportunity to connect, share, and play with friends and family in the weeks ahead. To ramp up excitement about our gala and garner support for this movement, consider…
Sharing your family story.
The most powerful tool for creating change is real-life experience. When you share about A #NightForFamilyEquality, tell the world why our work matters to you in your daily life. What issues are we tackling that impact your friends and family?
Making it a game!
Challenge your closest friends to create a fundraising page and see who can reach their goal first!
See which friends can outdo you on our virtual red carpet the night of the gala!
Or promise to post an embarassing photo of your family for every $100 raised!
Hosting a Watch Party!
Invite friends and family who might be interested in attending our virtual gala to join you on a Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype call during the gala.
Don’t underestimate the power of adorable family photos in garnering support for this movement! This virtual gala is all about our families—so show the world what yours looks like and encourage them to do the same!
Hosting a fundraising “Power Hour.”
Order your favorite takeout and get your friends and family together on a Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype call and see who can raise the most money in an hour!
Making a virtual lemonade stand.
As we move into summer, it’s a perfect time to start a virtual lemonade stand! Work with your children to “sell” home-made bracelets, cards, or baked goods that you can drop off safely on the porches of your “customers.”
Thank you to our generous sponsors!
