HRC Carolinas Gala

According to a press release sent out today by HRC Carolinas’ Public Relations & Marketing Co-Chair Bert Woodward, the Gala Dinner Steering Committee has announced that, along with the keynote address from Leslie Jordan (Sordid Lives), Broadway singer and original star of the Tony Award winning Dreamgirls Jennifer Holliday will perform at this year’s HRC Carolinas Gala on Saturday, February 24, 2007 at the Charlotte Convention Center.

You can still buy tickets at $175 per person to attend the dinner. After February 1st, the price will jump to $195 per person. Click here for more information on ticket purchase. The host hotel for this year’s event is the Westin Charlotte. Click here for more information on hotel lodging for the evening.

Those aged 18-25 can apply for dinner “scholarships.” The Gala is also offering discounted ticket prices in their OUTreach Dinner Fellowship program.

Personally, I applied for the Young Adult Dinner scholarship. I’m hoping that I will be able to receive it and attend the dinner. If I don’t receive, I think I’ll be hard-pressed to find any other way to attend, which will be sad for my friend Chris as we’ve planned on finding a third person to share a hotel room with that evening.
