The Fall Achievement Benefit (FAB) is the premier gala fundraiser of the LGBT Center of Central Pennsylvania. It is a black tie dinner and dance affair honoring those in the area who have made significant contributions to the well being of the LGBT community.

As a member of the LGBT Community Center Coalition, TransCentralPA is happy to support and participate in the Fall Achievement Benefit. We have several tables already reserved for TransCentralPA members & guests under our table captain Jeanine Ruhsam. Reserve your tickets early. The $100 registration fee ends soon, and then becomes $125 after October 31st. This night is sure to be sold out in advance. Please plan to come join us for this festive occasion, for you—trans people, families, significant others and allies—are TransCentralPA!  Click here for more info.

Annual Potluck Dinner
Saturday, December 13th at 5:30 pm

EVERYONE is invited to our Holiday Potluck Dinner on December 13th!  In lieu of our normal dinner and meeting, TransCentralPA is hosting a potluck dinner at the MCC of the Spirit in Harrisburg.  Doors open at 5:30 pm and we plan to seat at 6:00 pm

TransCentralPA will be providing the plates, napkins, utensils, table cloths, cups and two main entrées, one meat and one vegan.  Plan on a serving size for 4-6 people (12 if you sign up for rolls/bread or water). If needed, please bring a serving utensil for your dish as well. The church has limited oven space, so please plan accordingly.  And please, NO alcohol--the MCC does not permit it.

We have an electronic sign-up sheet so everyone can advertise what side-dish, desert or drinks they are bringing.  If you are unable to bring something, that's OK, just let us know that you plan to attend so we can include you in our headcount to ensure adequate seating.  We hope you can join us!  As we said, EVERYONE is invited, so please bring your friends and family.  Email us with questions at
