Tonight I attended a most excellent benefit for the Stonewall Community Foundation, a charity that supports many amazing LGBT organizations through grant-making, donor-advised funds, endowment funds and charitable education.
These name-tag kinds of dinners can be a bore, but this one wasn't. It took place at the United Nations (more on that tomorrow), lending the event an incredible setting and a special feel from the get-go. The crowd was heavy on the handsome eye candy. Fantasia (yes, that one) sang two songs with all her heart. And most incredible of all, a perfect rainbow appeared after a brief shower ... soaring over the East River and framing a huge swath of Brooklyn and Queens. After the rainbow faded into the ether, the drinks flowed freely and a full moon rose over the city. What a lovely reminder that charity is a blessing ... and that good things come to those who care.
