Beacons of Light



The 2017 Beacons of Light Dinner and Icon Awards Ceremony took place on Thursday, March 23 at the Courtyard Downtown in Boston, MA. This inaugural event exceeded fundraising goals by raising nearly $50k through sponsorships and ticket sales..


The evening honored the 2017 Icon Award Winners; Political Icon, Community Icon, and Special Recognition. The night provided an opportunity to celebrate the exceptional leadership, voice, and advocacy of individuals and organizations who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to bettering the lives of the LGBTQ community.

"Catalina was very helpful in planning and executing our signature event this year. She found us a great venue, connected us with good and affordable vendors, helped us stay on track throughout the process, and made sure everything ran smoothly throughout the event. Thank you, Catalina, for helping to make Beacons of Light: The 2017 Icon Awards a great success!"
