PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- On Saturday, February 8th, 2014, Q Center's annual Winter Gala: "MasQuerade: Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil" returns to Castaway Portland. The Winter Gala is Q Center's primary fundraiser for the year. Every ticket purchased makes it possible for the programs and services of this vital community resource to continue to thrive!

"When we gather on February 8th, more than raising money, it will be a celebration of how Q Center's programs and services change hearts and minds; how we provide safety for individuals to strengthen their lives," said Barbara McCullough-Jones, Q Center Executive Director.

"It is a celebration of our role as community convener and how we provide leadership for addressing the many issues that reflect Oregon's LGBTQ experience. We gather because it is critically important to raise money to support the positive health and well-being of a community that gives so much to create the beautiful Oregon landscape."
