Together We Rise

Event Details

This year’s event will be held on Friday, October 21, at the Palm Springs Air Museum. The theme: Together We Rise emphasizes the solidarity essential among LGBTQ+ and allied individuals in overcoming adversity and attaining progress. The evening will consist of a cocktail party, sit-down dinner, entertainment, live auction, and Legacy Award honorees.

"We want to bring our community together in solidarity and elevate one another," says Rob Wheeler, Executive Director & CEO of The Center, "and we want to do it in a fun, positive, and joyous way, which is why we chose 'Together We Rise' as our theme for this year's gala. It is also why we chose Jeremy Hobbs of the Western Wind Foundation and Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest as our honorees, for all the critical work they do for the Coachella Valley community in these trying times."

Announced to be the headlining the entertainment at the event are Jennifer Corday, the award-winning and out-and-proud lesbian singer/songwriter who has shared stages with Melissa Etheridge, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar and many other iconic female artists; and Brian Justin Crum, the top-charting queer singer-songwriter and former America's Got Talent finalist whose breakout Broadway role in Wicked led to a soaring career performing with Queen and sold-out worldwide concerts as a solo artist.

Alongside the entertainment will be the dazzling catering of Palm Springs' iconic LULU California Bistro. This year's gala is set to be more exclusively limited on attendee count, allowing a more vibrantly interactive experience between all in attendance.

Individual Tickets $350.
