You know those glitzy Hollywood events you see on TV? You know how you think it might be really cool to get all dolled up and stroll down the red carpet at one of those? Well you can turn your daydreams into reality without ever having to suffer through a Method acting class … and do a whole lot of good at the same time.
On Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014, our friends at The Trevor Project, the nation’s leading crisis-intervention and suicide-prevention program for LBGTQ young people, will be throwing its signature star-studded gala, TrevorLIVE. This irreverent evening of comedy and music will take place at the legendary Hollywood Palladium, and it also includes a fabulous silent auction. This being Hollywood, naturally there will be an after-party, as well.
We’re a sponsor of the event because Kimpton is a big fan and supporter of what The Trevor Project does, and we actively work toward equality every day. (We just scored a perfect 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index — for the 11th year in a row — making us one of HRC’s Best Places to Work for LBGT Equality.)
And even if you’re not in the L.A. area on Dec. 7, you can still participate in TrevorLIVE. The silent auction will be feeding out live via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and you — yes, you — can bid online. Just think, you can tell your friends you out-bid Jane Lynch for that weekend in San Francisco. And even after the auction closes, you can help out: Anytime you stay with us, you can give back to The Trevor Project (while saving 15 percent on your rate to boot). Just use the code TRPR when booking and you’ll get a discounted rate and we’ll donate $5 to The Trevor Project.
