What is Black Tie Dinner? 

Black Tie Dinner began as a small fundraising dinner among friends in 1982. Since then, it has grown into the largest fundraising dinner in the nation for the LGBTQ community.

To date, Black Tie Dinner has distributed over $25 million dollars to a wide variety of organizations serving the needs of the LGBTQ community. Black Tie Dinner is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
