The HRC Greater Cincinnati Our Dinner
Everyone should have the right to be who they are without prejudice. That’s something we hold very dear at Mercedes-Benz of Cincinnati, and why we were proud to sponsor the Human Rights Campaign Greater Cincinnati “Our Dinner” on March 19th. This dinner and fundraiser saw people from all over the greater Cincinnati area coming together to show their support for LGBTQ+ equality. Attendees were able to enjoy a delicious dinner, participate in a silent auction, and hear from speakers including our Mayor, Honorable Aftab Pureval, Nik Harris, HRC Directors of Strategic Outreach and Engagement, Dana Goldberg, and Shea Diamond. We also celebrated Michael Cotrell for receiving the David C Crowley Leadership Award and danced the night away with DJ Bobby G.
The dinner saw over 600 people in attendance, beating out our goal of 500 and that’s not all! The HRC also met their goals for the auction and corporate sponsorship fundraising, which will go towards the support of electing fair-minded politicians, lobbying for LGBTQ+ legislation, and fighting anti-LGBTQ+ legislation in the states. The LGBTQ+ communities need support now more than ever, and here at Mercedes-Benz of Cincinnati, we’re proud to be a part of the change!
The HRC has spent over 40 years fighting for equality for all LGBTQ+ people, as well as supporting the Trans community, people of color, and those who are HIV+. Their goal is to bring more awareness and education to people and get to a point where the LGBTQ+ community is fully accepted and treated fairly in society and politics.
