What: 36th Annual Black Tie Dinner Theme Reveal Party

Where: Concrete Cowboy

PC Moment: Celebrating the 36th annual Black Tie Dinner, more than 100 supporters poured in to the Uptown hotspot where they toasted to 2017 theme, “Together.” Chairs Nathan Robbins and David Gifford-Robinson made the grand reveal with the boisterous crowd which cheered at the news.

“Now, more than ever, it’s crucial for all of us to combine our energy and efforts to continue making positive strides for the LGBT community,” Robbins said. Not only did the duo share the theme but they also announced the dinner date. Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 11.

Since its inception in 1982, the event has become the nation’s largest LGBT fundraiser. Each year, the organization enlists the help of top-tier celebs such as Connie Britton, Martin Sheen, Sharon Stone, to serve as guest speakers. Anticipation is running high on who this year’s A-lister will be.

Who: Timothy Berry, Shannon Wong, Carter Lindsey, Haley Harrington, Tony Joy, Paul Hollowell, Tanner Oxner, Paul Hendershoot, Nate Robbins, Alex Young, John McGill, Michal Mahon.
