About Black Tie

Black Tie Dinner Inc. is a free-standing, volunteer based, nonprofit organization that began in 1982 to raise funds for LGBT supportive organizations.  The annual DFW Black Tie Dinner is the largest and most successful LGBT fundraising dinner in the nation, attracting more than 3,000 attendees each year. Amazingly, Black Tie Dinner Inc donates half of the proceedings from the event to the HRC Foundation, and distributes the remaining funds across up to twenty preselected local North Texas beneficiaries.

While we at HRC’s DFW Federal Club work closely with and enthusiastically support Black Tie Dinner Inc ., the leadership and implementation of programming of the two organizations are fully independent of one another.

Voucher Information

As a Federal Club member in good standing, you are entitled to two (2) nontransferable dinner vouchers. Vouchers are good for $200 off Black Tie Dinner's regular ticket price.

Vouchers will be issued in June by email if a good email address is on file. If you do not receive your vouchers, contact Federal Club Membership Administration at membership@dfwfederalclub.org. Please remember that HRC’s Federal Club ticket vouchers do NOT guarantee you a seat at the dinner as ticket sales are first come, first serve.

Seating at Black Tie Dinner is reserved based upon tables. If you have a Table Captain, you will need to provide that person with your vouchers.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A TABLE CAPTAIN, HRC’s DFW Federal Club has a limited number of tables reserved. Since seating is based on first come basis, if you and your guest(s) would like to be seated with other Federal Club members, please email Federal Club Black Tie Liaison at blacktie@dfwfederalclub.org  as soon as possible to reserve you seat(s).  Vouchers and Payment information will be collected as starting in mid-June.

If you have questions about the table selection process, call Black Tie Dinner, Inc. at 972-865-2239, or visit http://www.blacktiedinner.org.
