We have nearly 200 family and friends who will be participating in our wedding and its celebration next Sunday. About 180 of them are staying for the catered sit down dinner. There are 18 tables of ten and each table is decorated with props from a different musical or play. A six piece band will have the guests on their feet dancing to Motown, classic rock and show tunes.
When we sent out our invitation we requested no gifts. However, if people should desire to honor our union with a contribution, we suggested one of the following:
- Facing History and Ourselves, Summer Institute Scholarships (teacher training program): http://www.facinghistory.org/
- Jewish Family and Children Services, LGBT Project: http://www.jfcs.org/
- Congregation Beth Am, Kulanu Fund (LGBT outreach): http://www.betham.org/
- TheatreWorks, New Works Initiative: http://www.theatreworks.org/
Additionally, we encourage all to offer support in the form of a membership to the Human Rights Campaign, a national, nonprofit organization of 500,000 members dedicated to protecting the rights of GLBT individuals and families: http://www.hrc.org/. At the receiption we will have a table set up with information, brochures and posters from the above non-profit organizations.
