EqualityMaine 35th Anniversary Gala Auction Donation Form

Thanks for your interest in supporting this year’s Annual Awards Gala & Silent Auction. Our 35th anniversary event is scheduled for Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland.

The Gala is our signature annual fundraiser and is a highlight event of the year for Maine’s LGBTQ+ community. Last year’s Gala was the largest in EqualityMaine’s history with almost 700 attendees, and we anticipate another sell-out crowd this year. The event features our opening reception and silent auction, dinner, live music, guest speakers, and an awards ceremony to honor the heroes in our community who are doing powerful work to improve the everyday lives of LGBTQ+ Mainers. Comedienne, Christine O’Leary, returns as our guest host, and there will be an after party at the Portland House of Music.

Last year’s silent and live auctions featured 275 items that helped us raise more than $150,000 over the night to support our work. By supporting the Gala with a donation to this year’s auction, you will be making a direct impact on our work to make Maine a more fair and just place for every LGBTQ+ Mainer.  Specifically, your support will help us:

  • Create more inclusive and welcoming schools and communities for LGBTQ+ youth

  • Empower our next generation of young leaders through our New Leaders Project

  • Provide professional development for educators, health care providers, social service agencies, and community leaders to have greater competency in supporting LGBTQ+ clients, employees and customers.

  • Create safer workplaces and communities for transgender Mainers

We are looking for all kinds of donations from outdoor adventures, dining out, home goods, art and collectibles, jewelry, self-care services, recreation opportunities, unique experiences and more!

We greatly appreciate any donation that you are able to make.  Please fill out the form below and a member of our auction team will follow up with you soon.
