This festive event at the beautiful Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark hotel will feature Cocktail/Networking hour (cash bar), followed by an elegant plated dinner with choice of entrée. Then after the 20th Anniversary commemoration and presentations, music and dancing will further enliven the spirits of those in attendance.
In addition to celebrating a significant anniversary, the Gala will also include the presentation of the annual Charlotte Business Guild Community Service Awards, which recognize outstanding service to the local LGBT community. Originally called the Don King Award (in honor of its first recipient) and first presented in 1993, the award has recognized LGBT organizations, LGBT community leaders and LGBT-friendly businesses for service to the Charlotte LGBT community. Then beginning in 2008, the Charlotte Business Guild also started recognizing a straight ally with a "Bridge Builder" Award.
The Charlotte Business Guild has managed the annual award since 2004.
