Every year Family Equality provides opportunities for our supporters to celebrate together, enjoy entertainment, and raise funds to advance our work, ranging from galas to intimate gatherings at the homes of our supporters.

We hope you can join us at one of our upcoming special events.

Clambake 2019

Each year at Family Week, we host Clambake, a family celebration for members of our Protectors Circle—a group of loyal supporters who make our work possible with a personal commitment of at least $100 monthly or $1,200 annually—to express our gratitude and to encourage new families to join this remarkable group! Clambake is open to all Protectors Circle members, anyone who plans to join the Protectors Circle during the event, and all other major contributors to Family Equality’s work. With an old-fashioned feast of steamed lobsters, remarks by some very special guests, and a sunset family dance overlooking all of Provincetown, Clambake is one of our most beloved events.
