On October 28th a crowd of over 400 gathered for Basic Rights Oregon’s (BRO) Ignite! Gala to honor those who fight for equality among Oregon’s LGBTQ citizens, specifically Governor Kate Brown, The ACLU of Oregon, and BRO’s former executive director, Jeana Frazzini. We were honored that UEC’s own Shannon Scott was a co-chair for the event and presided as master of ceremonies, which also celebrated BRO’s 20th anniversary. UEC is always thrilled to partner with BRO in our mutual goal toward equality for the LGBTQ community. This year’s gala raised over $300,000 for Oregon’s largest LGBTQ nonprofit and was presented by The Smira Group/John L. Scott Real Estate.
