  • Print

The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada will celebrate local heroes at its 17th Honorarium, its annual fundraiser. The event will take place on Friday November 4th in the Octavius Ballroom at Caesars Palace, starting at 6:30 with the VIP cocktail reception and silent auction preceding the main event. This year’s honorees are Elizabeth Fretwell (Woman of the Year), Charles Atwood (Man of the Year), Joshua Miller and Steve Amend (Equality Award), and Charles Béraud (Volunteer of the Year). This year The Center will also honor Bob Forbuss for his cumulative contribution to the community and its lasting effect, with the Lifetime Achievement Award. "We’re getting to a point now where we can truly ascertain the full breadth of a person’s legacy and the myriad long-term effects of this commitment to community,” says Candice Nichols, Executive Director of The Center. “Bob is among the architects of this community: he has helped design and lay the foundations on which we can continue to build today and ensure a better tomorrow for the LGBT community in Las Vegas”. The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada is a community-based organization, which supports and promotes activities directed at furthering the well-being, positive image, and human rights of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender community and its supporters in Southern Nevada. “The Honorarium is a great opportunity for us to salute extraordinary people who have done some amazing things in and for the community” says Stephanie Rosol, President of The Center’s Board of Directors. “And thanks to the generosity of everyone involved, from corporate sponsors to businesses and services who donate auction items, performers who give their time, and of course all who attend, The Center continues to provide vital services to members of our community of all ages, races, gender identification or sexual orientations. It’s because of that support that we’ve been able to maintain and grow the level and range of services offered.” Tickets: General Admission $150 • VIP Admission $250 For more information:
