Horizons Gala 2022 Raises Over $300,000 for LGBTQ Community

Thank you so much for such an incredible evening on October 1! It was so exciting to see everyone’s smiling faces in-person at the iconic Fairmont Hotel for the first time in three years, and to welcome our virtual audience as well. I am so excited, grateful, and honored to announce that our hybrid Gala event raised over $300,000 for our continued mission to support grassroots LGBTQ organizations and to create a world where all LGBTQ people are able to live freely and fully.

If you weren’t able to join us on Saturday, or if you would like to relive the evening, please check out our photo gallery from the event, including the photo booth.  You can also watch the full recording.

I would like to once again extend our gratitude here at Horizons to our Visionary Award honoree Olga Talamante for her lifelong activism and to our Leadership Award honoree the Levi Strauss Foundation for decades of pioneering social change. I am also so proud to thank and congratulate our president, Roger Doughty, for 20 years of dedication and service to the Horizons Foundation and our critical work. Rewatch the video celebrating this milestone here!

Finally, I'm thrilled to share the winners of our raffle!
