Cody Vermillion

Silent Auction Co-Chair

“I volunteer for the HRC Columbus Gala because the work the Human Rights Campaign does inspires me. HRC is more than just an advocacy organization – it brings passionate individuals together and gives them a platform to have their voices heard as we continue working towards achieving full equality for the LGBT community. Our group in Columbus is vibrant and energetic. Working with them to create the Columbus Gala is a great opportunity to bring people together who are focused on a common goal.”

In Columbus, Cody is the development manager of corporate and foundation relations at OhioHealth Foundation. A 2015 graduate of The Ohio State University, Cody is active with his college’s Young Alumni Committee, COSI Young Professionals Board, and Association of Fundraising Professionals, as well as local democratic politics. He and his boyfriend are the proud parents of a three year old Australian Sheppard named Foster.

Cody enjoys, trying every new Columbus restaurant, travelling (stateside and abroad), making new friends, and sailing
