The Holiday with Heart Charity Gayla is a non-profit (501C3) organization. All committee members and volunteers work without compensation as a labor of love and an opportunity to improve the lives of members of our friends through donations to charities that provide direct assistance to the LGBT community. If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of others and would like to join us as a volunteer please contact Rick Cornett.

The founders of the Christmas Dinner Dance were Ed Hoffman, Dick Flock and David Hindall. Coming from various positions in the Northwest Ohio businesses, these individuals decided to create an event that would bring the GLBT community together during the holidays. Over the years all three of these men have supported multiple charitable organizations but the dinner dance, which began in 1977 with 16 people in attendance, has been their most enduring hallmark. The Toledo City Council has twice recognized this event, at the 20th and 25th anniversary. All three men are regularly in attendance at the event and we want to again recognize their contributions to the GLBT community.
