HRC Gala & Auction Tonight
The HRC Gala & Auction is tonight in Atlanta. They will be honoring Mo'Nique tonight. The Atlanta Gala Dinner is an annual event that consists of a large private auction, followed by a black-tie dinner to celebrate the steps they have made and to look towards a more just future. Just last year alone, they were able to raise over $400,000 for the cause through silent auction sales, corporate sponsorships, and over 1200 dinner participants.
Tickets are still available for purchase. If you're a student (with ID), you can get in for $100. I personally find HRC assimilationist and inaccessible. But hey, they have a lot of money and money is power...
