Photo of the Day: The GALA lounge

Members of the Emory Gay and Lesbian Alumni (GALA) gathered last Friday, January 21, for their sixth annual Fund-Raising Reception, which took place at the home of Dirk Brown 90B and Tim Burns. The 40 attendees raised $2,225 to support the GALA Student Leadership Scholarship Award and the 2011 Pride Awards. And that brings the total cash in hand for the GALA Student Leadership Award to $70,323, and the total pledged balance to $142,515.

The new GALA co-chairs Ryan Roche 03Ox 05C and Lily Correa 73C reviewed the past year, and also highlighted future GALA events and programs. Michael Shutt, assistant dean for campus life and director of the Office of LGBT Life, updated the group with information from his office.
