Table Captain

A Call to Action from The HRC Cleveland Gala Committee

On August 17th, we are once again hosting our annual HRC Gala at the new Hilton Downtown Cleveland. This venue is spectacular and offers amazing views of our great city.  There is not a better place for us to come together and celebrate our progress and raise attention to the important work that we still have ahead of us.

Help fill the Tables!

Your presence at this year’s HRC Gala event can and will make a difference, and our success depends on you.  Please consider becoming a Table Captain and reaching out and connecting with our LGBTQ friends, family, and allies to attend this year’s HRC Cleveland Gala event.

The goal of a Table Captain is to fill a table with 10 guests.  It does not mean you have to buy 10 tickets.  Being a Table Captain simply means that you are willing to reach out to family, friends, and colleagues to encourage them to join us on August 17th for the LGBTQ event of the year!  It is a great way to introduce people to our organization and all the great work we do.  Table Captains also get early access to award winners, entertainment announcements and other important information about the event.  Lastly, it’s the best way to pick who you sit with at the gala!!!

Being a Table Captain is fun, rewarding and one of the single most important volunteer opportunities HRC has to offer!  Can’t find 10 friends?  That’s ok.  Fill the table with as many as you can and we will take care of the rest!  Have more than 10 friends?  Table Captains are more than welcome to have multiple tables and we will do our best to make sure your tables are adjacent to one another.

To purchase your ticket and sign up to be a Table Captain, visit our ticketing vendor.
