SMYAL's Annual Fall Brunch

The Fall Brunch Co-Chairs, SMYAL Executive Director Sultan Shakir, and members of the Board invite you to the 24th Annual SMYAL Fall Brunch fundraiser!
SMYAL’s premier event, the annual Fall Brunch, includes a cocktail reception featuring a fabulous silent auction, a three-course brunch, and a chance to hear from some of our community’s most inspiring leaders. Every year, the Fall Brunch brings together LGBTQ and allied community members, friends, and families in support of the inspirational youth SMYAL works with every day.
We’re excited to announce that the 2021 Fall Brunch will be hosted in person by MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart at the beautiful Marriott Marquis!
