HOW DO I BECOME A TABLE CAPTAIN & WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES?
Note – Table Captains are not required to pre-purchase seats and are not
responsible to purchase tickets at their tables if they do not sell.
WHAT IS A TABLE CAPTAIN?
Table Captains are the backbone of ensuring a successful, well-attended Gala Dinner each year. As the official recruiters and promoters for the dinner, we partner with our Table Captains to help spread the word about the work of HRC in order to encourage friends, family and colleagues to purchase tickets to attend. Any individual, partners/couples, company, affinity group, or charity group can serve as a Table Captain.
WHAT IS THE HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN?
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE DINNER?
HRC cannot operate without funds, and here in Arizona we have grown to host one of the largest fundraisers for HRC in the country. These dinners, which happen in many cities across the country, attribute over 40% of HRC’s annual budget.
The HRC Arizona Gala Dinner is an annual event that consists of a large silent auction, followed by a black tie dinner program that celebrates the achievements made in furthering the basic civil rights of the LGBT community.
WHY ARE TABLE CAPTAINS IMPORTANT?
Our Table Captains are vital to the success of the dinner as they enable us to reach so many people that otherwise may have never heard of or attend the dinner. Table Captains help us fill the tables at the dinner by helping raise awareness and excitement about the dinner and the cause of HRC.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING A TABLE CAPTAIN?
Special Incentive For the 9th Annual HRC Arizona Gala Dinner, Table Captains who sell nine full priced tickets ($200) by February 1st will receive their own individual ticket FREE OF CHARGE.
Recognition As Table Captains you are important to the success of our event and we want to recognize you in the HRC community. We will do this in the following ways:
Networking Table Captains are invited to two exclusive HRC receptions prior to the dinner. At these events Table Captains learn about the work of HRC, hear from local leaders in the movement, and are able to network with HRC Federal Club and Major Donor members.
Friends You will be able to enjoy the dinner with your closest friends since it is your personally selected table.
Rewarding You are directly contributing to funding the fight for national and local LGBT civil rights.
