The theme of the 2015 OPAL Gala is A Celebration of Community. A lot has happened in the last few years and we are grateful to be part of our larger community. The event will be on Saturday October 24th at the Carleton in Oak Park. This event will include a sit-down dinner, minimal presentations, silent & live auctions, and dancing. Doors open at 7 with appetizers and our silent auction. Dinner should start around 8. Money raised will fund our scholarship program. Additional money raised will be shared with Housing Forward, Thrive, and the UIC Gender & Sexuality Center. Please join us – this yearly event is always a great time.
