Why a Dinner?

The Human Rights Campaign cannot operate without funds, and here in New England, we have grown to host the longest HRC gala fundraisers in the country for the cause of equality. Additionally—in New England we are fortunate enough to be able to celebrate many accomplishments! The dinner serves as an opportunity to celebrate while also being the largest fundraising event of the year. The New England Gala Dinner + Auction in Boston is an annual event that consists of a large private auction, followed by a gala dinner, and after party to celebrate the progress we have made and to look toward a more just future.
