According to the Black Tie Dinner website, the event has been “the largest fundraising dinner for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community in the nation” since its founding in 1982.
Proceeds are donated to the Human Rights Campaign Foundation each year as well as to several North Texan beneficiaries. The Black Tie Dinner has distributed over $25 million since its founding.
