We are excited to announce a new and improved Live Out Loud for 2016! We heard your feedback last year – that you love the event, that you believe it to be a vital fundraiser for The Project and the legacy and purpose are STILL RELEVANT and IMPORTANT! With that, we also heard that an event on Sunday evening can be tough to attend and maybe it was time to mix it up…SO, here come a few fun changes!

Announcing, the Live Out Loud Champagne Brunch! Join us Sunday, November 6 from 11:00am – 2:00pm for a fabulous brunch buffet at Forte in downtown Des Moines. The entertainment will still feature some of your local Des Moines favorites, in addition to our fun headliner, Dixie Longate. Dixie will make you laugh until you cry with her unique brand of hilarity and Tupperware talk!


As we have in the past, we will host a silent auction with some of your favorite restaurants and experiences from around Des Moines as well as some terrific wines and other cocktail ingredients. New this year will be a gallery of portraits donated to The Project by Iowa artist, Tilly Woodward. The portraits are of some of the earliest Iowans effected by the HIV crisis of the 1980’s and demonstrate the artist’s desire to combine words with faces and lift up those that were living with AIDS.

Tickets go on sale August 25, 2016!
