What a Night!

The Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective's

 20th One Big Event Was Terrific! 

The Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective's 20th One Big Event was a wonderful night. We cannot say Thank You! enough to everyone who helped make this night a memorable triumph.

There are many components to the evening's success: Our Sponsors, including our Biggest Sponsor Circle Care Center, Program Book Advertisers, Auction Donors, Staff, Board Members, Table Captains, Volunteers, Attendees and everyone else who lent a helping hand. This is truly a team effort. Way to go One Big Event Team!

The Silent and Live Auctions brought out the competitive spirit in many folks both in attendance and online. Congrats to the winners. Please remember to pick up your items at the Health Collective. We will mail out gift certificates. Call Dan Millett at (860)278-4163 x118 to arrange your visit. Thanks for your cooperation!

The evening's exhilaration is all for one goal: to support the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective and programs and services we provide to over 7,000 people in our community. Thank you!
