The dinner journal is a physical extension of the dinner itself, and an elegant memento of one unforgettable evening. The journal not only serves as the program for the evening, but beautifully highlights all aspects of it, including speakers, award recipients, beneficiary information, and sponsor recognition. The dinner journal is a great way to creatively show your support for Black Tie Dinner, the LGBTQ community, and make an impression on our attendees that will last far beyond the night of the dinner.
