If honoring the community’s LGBT heroes weren’t reason enough to attend Tuesday night’s Heroes Gala & Silent Auction fundraiser, how about the Swedish Embassy and a Real Housewife?
This year’s gala is at the House of Sweden (the Swedish Embassy), a stunning contemporary building located on the Georgetown waterfront at 2900 K Street NW.
To top it off, Mary Amons will be one of the evening’s hosts — Amons was one of the stars of The Real Housewives of D.C. and is involved with a number of charitable and philanthropic activities in the metro area.
Tickets for Tuesday’s gala are $50 in advance and $75 at the door if still available (and the open bar comes with a ticket purchase). Proceeds from the silent auction benefit Capital Pride. Business or cocktail attire. The event runs from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.
Among Amons’ endeavors is Labels for Love, “whose mission is to raise critical funds and awareness in support of women’s and children’s charitable organizations by producing unique fashion, art and design inspired events.”
2011 Capital Pride Heroes: Bill Browning, June Crenshaw, Tyrone Hanley, Dr. Theo Hodge, The Rev. Jill McCrory and Rebecca Roose.
2011 Engendered Spirit Awards: Terra Moore, Gibby Thomas, Mara Keisling, Ruby Corado, Drs. Dennis and Christine Wiley and Joe Izzo.
