DENVER - "Less Gab, More Fab" is the exciting new theme for the Human Right Campaign Dinner coming up on Saturday, Feb. 26 at the Adam's Mark Hotel in downtown Denver. Former major league baseball athlete, Billy Bean, will be the featured speaker.

After years of living secretly while playing major league baseball, Bean publicly came out in 1999. His story was front-page news in the New York Times, and subsequently on a nationally televised story with Diane Sawyer as well. He is the only living former major league baseball player to acknowledge his homosexuality. He has been working actively to try and dispel the myth and stereotypes that follow people of diversity.

The HRC Dinner will also be honoring Tim Gill with the Paul Hunter Award. A
successful software entrepreneur, and one of only two openly gay individuals on the 1997 Forbes 400 list, Gill is an active philanthropist who cares passionately about many issues. Through the Gill Foundation, he provides millions of dollars annually to gay and lesbian and HIV/AIDS organizations along with other charitable causes.

CH2M Hill will receive the Outstanding Business Award. Since its founding in 1946, CH2M HILL has grown from a small firm of four employees to today¹s global corporation of 14,000. CH2M HILL is a Colorado company whose influence and impact have touched millions of people around the world.

The Outstanding Youth Award, a new award for this year's dinner, will be presented to Heather Ray from Northglenn High School for her work with the GSA-Diversity Club in bringing awareness and tolerance to Northglenn High School on gay and lesbian issues.

MCs for this year's dinner will be Kirk Montgomery, 9News Entertainment Reporter, and Ginny Corsi, president of Corsi Associates. A Not-So-Silent Auction hosted by Nuclia Waste will take place before the dinner and featured entertainment will include The Groove Society. A live auction during dinner will include a Piaggio Typhoon Scooter and an Olivia Cruise for two with airfare on Frontier Airlines.

Tickets for the dinner are $175 and are available by visiting www.BoxOfficeTickets.comor by calling 800-494-TIXS (8497)
