2014 Holiday Party Countdown: We need Sponsors!

2014 Holiday Party Countdown: We need Sponsors!

It’s hard to believe that there is only one month left before the Federal Club’s Holiday Extravaganza! The planning committee, led by our Holiday Party Co-Chairs, Steve Wiscaver and Liz Rodriguez, are planning an amazing evening.  This year, the party will be back at Arlington Hall at Lee Park.  And it is truly a party not to be missed!! 

We need YOU — as always we rely heavily on member and member’s companies’ sponsorships.  As we get closer to the date, we need to make final decisions about the party and many of those depend on the available budget.  Cutting to the chase, we need to know what we have to work with to determine just how great the party can be!

Our Fall Luncheon will be a Celebration of DFW | #YouAreHRC

September 2, 2014 by Jaime Duggan & Chris Lindsey, 2014 Federal Club Co-Chairs

Diversity•Women•Legacy•Equality | #YOUareHRC
Join us September 27 at the Tower Club in Dallas

Mark your calendars and reserve your seats for the DFW Federal Club Fall Luncheon. The Fall Luncheon will treat you to another celebration - YOU. The HRC Story is very much a Dallas-Fort Worth Story – the diversity of our unique community, the significant leadership of  women, the nearly thirty years of financial and leadership commitment to direct and support HRC's mission for LGBT Equality. In short, this story is the "story of YOU"  – each of you, as individuals and couples, long time donors, new members – the diverse tapestry of age, gender, ethnicity and backgrounds that are the hallmark of our community. Our history began in adversity, supporting each other to ensure that ALL have equal access to the American dream.

We hope that the program at this luncheon will inspire you and remind you of the great legacy that is ours to safeguard and to continue until all LGBT Americans are truly Equal. Each of you are the face of HRC and Dallas-Fort Worth Federal Club and we celebrate YOU! #YouAreHRC

We also expect tickets for this luncheon to sell out, so RSVP today to secure you seats.

Saturday, September 27  [ More Info ]
10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Tower Club, Thanksgiving Tower, 1601 Elm Street, 48th Floor • Dallas

We have lots of surprises planned…along with a real mix of past, present and future people and plans for DFW Federal Club!!! We'll have some special "blast from the past" guests who have already done so much and some “up-and-comers” who are leading the work of HRC into the future. 

Thanks again for all you do!
See you at the Fall Luncheon!

his year’s Fairway to Equality Golf Tournament was one for the record books! With the Calcutta and the golf tournament, the committee was able to raise more than $60,000 for HRC. If you weren’t there, you missed a great time.  The golf committee reports this may be the second best year ever! At the Friday night Calcutta event/auction alone, more than $32,000 was raised.
