One Big Event 2018

One Big Date

Help the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective

 Celebrate Our 35th Anniversary!

The 16th One Big Event is Coming on October 20 - 6-11pm!

We are thrilled to announce that the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective’s 16th One Big Event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 6-11pm at the Connecticut Convention Center.  We have been planning and devising and dreaming up the best possible gala you will ever attend.  We hope you will attend for a wonderful occasion filled with thirst-quenching cocktails, delectable dinner, an auction so hot your credit card will be smoking and a DJ that has been known to raise the dead for one last spin on the dance floor.
Yeah, it’s gonna be that kind of party and you’re gonna want to be a part of it.   
So grab your besties, buy your tickets and help us make this a night to remember!
