We invite you to join the Host Committee for GRIOT’s Annual 22ND Anniversary Celebration and Benefit. The event will take place on October 16th, 6-9 pm at The Dumbo Loft in Brooklyn, N.Y. The evening’s festivities will include three extraordinary honorees, music, food and drinks, a silent auction and most importantly the coming together of community.
As you know, GRIOT (Gay Reunion In Our Time) is dedicated to working with and serving the needs of LGBTQ elders of color. In the spirit of our founders, we will honor three visionaries who have given visibility and leadership to our communities through their work, words, and actions.
We are asking Host Committee Members to 1) purchase a ticket or sponsorship, 2) sell at least 3 tickets, a sponsorship or a table, 3) spread the word and include your name on the invitations. As a host, you will be supporting and honoring the elders and ancestors who have blazed a path for us and continue to be an important part of our communities. Please let us know by July 20th if you agree to the above so we can begin to list you on our event materials.
