Feast On Equality Cocktail Party

Dr. Brad Calobrace of Calobrace Plastic Surgery Center and a few friends hosted a party on Sept. 16 to inform guests about an upcoming fundraising dinner, Feast On Equality, held Nov. 16 at Mellwood Arts Center.

Four years ago, the University of Louisville’s Office for LGBT, and a few concerned community members, noticed there were a significant number of students who did not have a place to spend their Thanksgiving holiday, a time that can be especially challenging for those in the LGBT community. Thus, the first Alternative Thanksgiving event was created at UofL. To build on its success, Feast On Equality will be launched this year to provide much-needed financial resources to the Office for LGBT Services, while sending the message that our youth are important throughout the entire year.
