We are pleased to announce Q Center’s 4th annual Winter Gala, happening on Saturday, February 18th, 2012 at the Y.U. Contemporary Art Center in Portland, Oregon! The event is a celebration of community and a fundraiser for Q Center, Portland’s LGBT Community Center. As a place for community, the Q Center increases the visibility of and fosters connections within Portland’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Allied community. Q Center builds public awareness and celebrates the diversity of Portland’s community, offering a home for education, connection and resources. The work we do is vital and the Winter Gala is our primary fundraiser for the year. Please save the date and join us for this incredible event! This year promises to be the best yet.

“What will never go out of style is the little black dress, a good glass of champagne, close friends celebrating, and Q Center’s mission of service. Our 2012 Winter Gala’s casual approach to elegance will take our guests back to the early 60’s where style reigned supreme and the club was the place to be seen. This year’s gala will affirm Q Center’s mission and inspire attendees to donate and support the organization’s commitment to our community.”
– Don James Aguilera, Chair 2012 Q Center Winter Gala
