February: GALA Festival Fundraiser - Santa Fe Gay Realtor
New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus
WHAT IS GALA?
GALA stands for Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses. GALA Choruses leads the North American LGBT choral movement. Every four years GALA Choruses holds their signature event. The GALA Festival, which brings together over 130 choruses and 6000 singers for the world’s largest LGBT performing arts event.
HOW HAS NMGMC BEEN INVOLVED IN GALA IN THE PAST?
The New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus is a member of GALA Choruses and has participated at several of the past quadrennial festivals. We are one of three New Mexico based choruses that help represent our beautiful state at an international festival.
WHEN & WHERE IS THE FESTIVAL?
This year the GALA Festival will occur July 4-8, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN. NMGMC will be performing on July 5th at the Minneapolis Convention Center which can seat up to 3500 people! How exciting!
WHY DOES THE CHOIR SEPARATE THE FUNDRAISING?
GALA is a special expense that we don’t want to take away from the chorus, so we fundraise separately from our general NMGMC donations. Any money we receive goes to helping our members afford the expenses required to attend!
HOW YOU CAN HELP US TO FUNDRAISE AND DONATE?
You can help by spreading the word about us going to GALA and needing your help! We accept any and all donations no matter how small because in the end even a small donation can make all the difference!
