Triangle Community Center (TCC) graciously invites you to the 12th Annual Visionary Gala! The Visionary Gala is TCC's most important annual fundraising event-- and this year we are putting a special focus on our services that help LGBTQ people every single day her in Connecticut. With your support, you will join hundreds of others in ensuring that we have the resources we need to support programs at TCC. These programs include getting young adults off the street, connecting transgender individuals with the best care, and providing a forum for all to thrive. Our youth groups, case management program, Pride festival, and trainings all count on the success of the Visionary Gala. We are delighted to give you a night to remember for a cause worth fighting for. 

An extravaganza that our community cherishes annually, the Visionary Gala will delight you. This year we are offering you world class food from Abigail Kirsch Catering, entertainment and music so you can dance the night away, and an awards ceremony spotlighting leadership and courage in the LGBTQ community. 

There's so much to look forward to:

We've moved the event to an exciting new location! The space at the Loading Dock is perfect for this event. Celebrate the Visionary Gala in style with us and get pampered by quality service. 

EVERYONE gets a sit-down dinner and access to our live auction and awards ceremony. You asked-- we listened. This year, every guest at the Visionary Gala will have access to a delicious dinner and our awards ceremony and other activities that were previously just at our VIP Dinner. Bring your appetites!

What is TCC?
Triangle Community Center (TCC) is Fairfield County's one and only LGBTQ community center. TCC is home to over two-dozen drop in programs, which house youth groups, recovery programs, peer support groups, and so much more. In 2015, we began our case management program to help people in need. Our case management team meets people who need our support and helps them to create a care plan that often includes TCC-provided resources such as: financial assistance, housing, navigation, probate assistance, and referrals. TCC also provides LGBTQ cultural competency trainings for businesses, nonprofits, educators, and law enforcement in Fairfield County so that they are better prepared to work with members of our community. Our clients are primarily low to no income LGBTQ young adults and older adults from Bridgeport, Norwalk and Stamford. TCC does serve all of Fairfield County and offers programming in Greater Danbury. TCC is participating in the statewide effort to end youth and young adult homelessness by 2020. On any given night there are 3000 homeless young adults in CT and 1000 of them identify as being LGBTQ. To that end, this year, TCC launched its Young Adult Services program with a new space here in Norwalk to get young adults off the street and to give them a safe environment in which to connect and thrive. 

What is the Visionary Gala?
The  Visionary Gala is TCC's one big fundraising event of the year. Each year the event raises over 20% of the operating funds TCC requires to provide our current level of programming and services to the community. The funds are donated by generous and supportive members of our community as well as exceptional corporate partners. The event includes a sit down dinner for 300 people, community awards given to those who have served the LGBTQ community locally with distinction, spotlights of TCC's programs and services, silent auction, live auction, and a night full of entertainment and dancing.
