18th One Big Event

November 14, 2020


Hi Everyone !  All of us at the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective hope you are safe and well and looking out for each other.  We wouldn’t want it any other way. 

As you all know the world is a far different place than what we would wish it to be.  A lot has changed, but somethings are not going to go away.  The Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective's 18th One Big Event is still going on, so keep Nov. 14 free for a date with us. We are making adjustments as the times demand, but this will still be the exciting fundraiser that you all know and love. It's not too early to get your friends all lined up to participate in the party that raises much needed funds for the Health Collective.  

These are challenging times for our agency, but we are resilient and adaptable.  We need all of our friends to help us keep our programs and services strong and running.  Your support in any capacity will keep us strong. 

EVERYONE benefits from the work of the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective.  We’re trans-friendly, sex-positive and non-judgmental!  We work with you to make healthy and positive choices in your life.  Every day we help people save their lives.  Do your part and support the Health Collective – be a part of the One Big Event that keeps us going strong.

If this sounds like your kind of fundraiser, we want to talk with you.  Please contact One Big Event Coordinator Dan Millett at (860)278-4163 x118.
