Black Tie Dinner Beneficiary
Black Tie Dinner, Inc, is a non profit organization that raises funds for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender supportive organizations serving North Texas through a premier event of empowerment, education and entertainment in partnership with the community. BTD was begun in 1982 by some very dedicated people in the GLBT community of Dallas and has since grown to become the largest GLBT fundraising event of its kind in the nation. During the past 29 years, BTD has distributed over $15 million dollars to its national and local beneficiaries.
Northaven United Methodist Church is very honored to be counted in the group of local beneficiaries. The monies received from BTD have allowed Northaven to develop and host programs that further support social justice and diversity in our community. Through the efforts of many members, the This I Know study guide and course was developed and is now available for distribution to other churches and organizations. Northaven also hosts Journey: A Coming Out Workshop, Straight Spouse Network, PFLAG, and other groups supporting the GLBT community and their families, friends, spouses, and partners.
