Unable to attend but wish to help?
If you are unable to attend the Gala but would like to help Live Out Loud in another way, please:


Serve on the Host Committee
As a Host Committee Member you would lent your name to the event for use on the invitation and program journal. We would ask you commit to purchase at least one ticket or higher level and help sell tickets to friends, colleagues, and family. There’s no set number of tickets you need to sell; we just want everyone to make their greatest effort. We will proved you with invitations that can be mailed to your network and a jpeg which can be emailed. We also encourage you to network with friends and and colleagues to support our program ads and silent auction.


Donate to the Silent Auction
We anticipate the silent auction will contain approximately 100-125 lots that will be prominently showcased during the cocktail reception and throughout the evening. Additionally the display of your promotional materials at the silent auction tables will provide your company further visibility.


Purchase a Journal Ad
One of the special attractions of this event is our journal, which helps us raise money for programs and scholarships, which is given to all of our upscale guests who are eager to purchase products and support businesses that they know are supporting the LGBTQ community. We would be delighted if you could join us in purchasing an ad in our journal. Please see our journal form for specific sponsorship benefits.
