In two weeks, CV Stonewall will be holding their 3rd annual Central Valley Stonewall Leadership Award Luncheon & Fundraiser. The theme of this year's fundraiser will be Celebrating Progress: Do Ask, Do Tell and will feature esteemed guest speaker, Commander Zoe Dunning, the first and only openly gay person allowed to remain on active duty in the military prior to the end of Don't Ask Don't Tell. In addition to Commander Zoe Dunning, CV Stonewall is honored to host our invited guests; Stockton City Councilwoman and CA Assembly candidate Susan Eggman, Mayor Ann Johnston, CA Assemblymember Cathleen Galgiani, CA Senator Lois Wolk, and Congressman Jerry McNerney.
This event is a time to honor our national and local LGBT leaders for their service to our community. As such, CV Stonewall will be awarding four of our community members for their outstanding achievements in the areas of political, business, community, and youth leadership. Please consider attending in order to help celebrate the accomplishments of our award winners:
