Transcript community Fund-raiser pays big dividends for local groups DECEMBER 24, 1999 « HOUSTON VOICE COMMUNITY CALENDAR OCCASIONS • CARMART • CLASSIFIEDS BUSINESS DIRECTORY • MY STARS by ROBERT B. HENDERSON From heath fairs for lesbians to advocacy efforts for gay teens, more than a dozen local groups received financial support for their efforts, thanks to the proceeds from a record-setting dinner. Some $144,000 in proceeds from the Nov. 13 Houston Black Tie Dinner was distributed to the groups earlier this month. A record-setting 1,200 people attended the event at the George R. Brown Convention Center. "We throw one big party. It's a glamorous evening where people come out. They're able to eat dinner, hear a great speaker, do silent auction and take pictures with their friends. We had dinner music and dance music at the end. The George R. Brown has never looked more gorgeous," said Amanda M. Barhost, president of Houston Black Tie Dinner. The $16,000 that Bering Omega Community Services received will support several programs for the AIDS service organization, said Bill Kersten, executive director. "We really want to get the community to think of us as offering HIV services rather than thinking of our individual components," he said. "That was the thinking behind asking for the money in this way. Overall our goal is to provide continuous care to people with HIV," Kersten said. Some $12,166 went to the Houston Area Teen Coalition of Homosexuals (H.A.T.C.H.), which will help continue funding for the group's mentoring efforts for young gays ages 13 to 20, and expand outreach efforts into local public schools, said Kevin Davidson, H.A.T.C.H. board president. "[We will be] offering continuing education unit hours to administrators, teachers and counselors to educate on sexual minority youth issues and safe environments within their schools," Davidson said. Though H.A.T.C.H. focuses mostly on schools within Houston Independent School District, the group is receiving calls from suburban school districts. The Montrose Clinic will use its $18,120 for several programs, including specialty clinics, HIV counseling and testing, and advocacy efforts, said Todd Foster, the clinic's development director. "Without Black Tie, that would leave a significant dollar amount we would have to go out and ask the community for," Foster said. "One of the great advantages of Black Tie is it consolidates fund-raising efforts between several different agencies. It's really nice to see the community Bering Omega's Bill Kersten said proceeds from the Black Tie Dinner will bolster the group's programs (or people with AIDS, while Jackie Duval, president of Lesbian Health Initiative, said new funding will help its health fairs. come together as one like that for a common cause." The 7-year-old Lesbian Health Initiative received $2,579 from Black Tie, which will help fund health fairs that provide mammograms, Pap smears, and screenings for osteoporosis and sexually transmitted diseases. "With the Health tnitiative we're able to provide on an annual basis health fairs," said Jackie Duval, the group's president. "It allows a group of women to have more focused fairs like for Hispanic women, Asian women, and older women." The health fairs often provide the only preventative health care some women receive because of a lack of insurance or a lack of comfort with other doctors, Duval said. "The physicians we have who come and staff the health fairs are volunteers who understand our community very well. The physicians are lesbian or 'friendly,'" Duval said. Other groups receiving funds from the dinner: AIDS Foundation Houston ($7,432), The Assistance Fund ($17, 592), AssistHers ($5,720), Body Positive- Houston ($3,868), Center for AIDS ($3, 798), PFLAG ($7,829), PWA Coalition ($$,852), Texas Human Rights Foundation ($3,540), An Uncommon Legacy ($6,130) and The Gay & Lesbian Victory Foundation ($27,800). ^ ALEXIS 8l LYNN wd|fit6 Entertain you in style ct%f? ^EV* YEAR'S EVE HiTllLLEHMIUm I>41*TM PURCHASE YOUR.
