Join BRAVO for a fabulous evening filled with fun and adventure as we celebrate our 20th year of service to the Ohio LGBTQI communities! Come out and experience an evening of fine dining, premier homes and engaging conversation: Guess Who's Coming To Dinner 2016 offers an intimate dining experience with 8 - 10 individuals in a private home. A touch of intrigue rounds out the appeal, as the mystery of where and with whom guests will dine will unfold that evening at the opening cocktail reception where a cash bar and lite hors d’oeuvres will be offered. The reception includes a silent auction full of fabulous must have items, and a short awards ceremony honoring and celebrating excellence in our communities. An exciting addition to the event is live entertainment by The Asia Project, an award winning and nationally acclaimed spoken word artist. At the conclusion of the opening reception attendees with dinner tickets will be given directions to their destinations, where they will join dinner hosts and fellow attendees.

In an environment of ever intensifying violence, BRAVO is asking for your support. BRAVO remains the only provider of services responding to hate and bias violence, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and stalking within the LGBTQI communities of Ohio. Supporting BRAVO at this event will ensure our continued lifesaving and affriming services in our state. We at BRAVO are honored to have provided 20 years of continual service to Ohio and remain committed to offer services to our communities since 1996. These vital services include, but are not limited to, the following:  

  • Judgment-free support for survivors, their family, and friends, including legal, medical, and law enforcement advocacy/accompaniment
  • Community-wide education, self-defense classes, and support groups 
  • HelpLine and crisis intervention
  • Cultural competency training for first responders
  • Documentation of hate crimes, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and stalking
  • Links to local law enforcement officials, attorneys, therapists, and other support services

Thank you for partnering with us to make a difference!
