  • The Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (MDGLCC) will honor corporate and individual supporters of the Miami-Dade LGBT community at its 17th Annual Gala and Awards Celebration, The Ruby Gala, on Saturday, May 19th, 2018 at the Hilton Miami Downtown.  Over 500 guests are expected to be in attendance to pay tribute to the honorees selected for their long-term commitment to fostering diversity, as well as for their efforts in contributing to the overall well-being and quality of life in South Florida. While at its core, the Gala is a networking event, the evening will have many surprises to make it a fun and memorable experience.

    Following a long standing tradition, the MDGLCC’s Gala Committee selects a different color of the rainbow flag for the gala’s theme and elevates the status of that color by interpreting it in its gem stone complement. The 2018 “ruby” theme signifies passion, protection, & prosperity, . The MDGLCC encourages guests to wear a splash of ruby (red) to this year’s event. The 17th Annual Gala and Awards Celebration, The Ruby Gala, presented by Wells Fargo, will consist of a cocktail reception, silent auction, and interactive pop-up displays which will be followed by a grand buffet, the awards presentation, and a Moonlight Networking soiree.

    “Our annual gala is all about networking with each other and with leaders in the community. It is the networking event of the year. Our guests just get to have a lot of fun in the process,” said Steve Adkins, MDGLCC president.
