Sick... Turn your attention to http://www.hrccarolina.org/awards.html and look under Scholarships and Dinner Fellowships.
And I expect a clarification and correction to your past inaccurate reporting. You know I'd do the same if I had reported something wrong.
Yes I did find where they do give reduce tickets
HRC Carolinas also offers those with limited income to apply for the "Dinner Fellowship" to attend the Gala. The Gala committee strives to involve populations in this annual HRC fundraiser, regardless of level of income and other differences, and offers a limited number of fellowships to those individuals that demonstrate need and would not otherwise be able to attend the dinner without financial assistance. Those receiving the fellowship can attend the Gala dinner at a reduced dinner ticket price.
However I feel if this was true they would have located this information on the ticket page. I can only guess that NC HRC doesn't want people to know that they would give a LIMITED NUMBER OF these tickets out.
Then there is this,
The "Emerging Leader Dinner Scholarship" provides dedicated monies from the 2009 Gala committee to encourage 18-25 year-old North Carolina and South Carolina residents to attend the dinner as guests of HRC. HRC Carolinas desires to involve individuals from this age group to encourage their participation as supporters and leaders of future HRC events in NC and SC. As a scholarship recipient, you will receive a free ticket to the dinner and you are asked to provide volunteer support at the Convention Center the day of the Gala dinner. Also, you will be eligible for an opportunity to attend training at HRC national headquarters.
Holy shit, if you are a scholarship recipient you get a free ticket, and you are ask to work as a volunteer, at the the Gala, I can only guess they need a lot of cater-waiters..Better yet maybe then need more hat and coat checkers. Ok I would volunteer for that so I could try on their Fur coats while they are eating
All I can say is when Equality NC Held their Gala they put all ticket prices information on the ticket page. Unlike NC HRC where they hid it on a scholarship page where most would think you would find information on applying for a Scholarship, not reduce tickets. This is call being organize not sneaky.
This is why they need so much money, that damn overhead..
Gas, hotel rooms, food, drink, dinner tickets, tuxedos, taxi fares, limo and executive car rentals. The Gala committee spends plenty of cash on the Gala production itself, decorations and convention center and hotel fees.Ok Why would they need limos for, please they can rent about three cars for the price of one limo.
Also why keep going to a city where the Mayor won't even welcome you to the city.
Every year the Human Rights Campaign rolls into Charlotte for its annual Gala dinner. With the more than 1,000 dinner attendees (one year it topped 1,400), comes an exchange of, literally, millions of dollars.Why Can't the NC HRC hold this Gala in other cities around NC? This could explain why the LGBT community east of 95 feels so left out and not apart of the NC LGBT community. I know I was shock to heard that Equality NC was holding an Event in my town Rocky Mount, even though it's on school Bullying.
What about the rest of the state, those who live in rural towns east of Rocky Mount. I can only guess those LGBT member who live in cities and town like Greenville, Elizabeth City, the Outer Banks, and all point in between doesn't matter, only those who live Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Statesville, Greenboro, and Charlotte, which is where the well off live and work. Those who can give those very large donations.
