Broadway.com and many others joined forces on April 21, coming together for a Night At The Tavern, a benefit evening for New York-based advocacy group, the Family Equality Council.
Recording artist and Broadway alum Clay Aiken was honored at the upscale event, held at NYC landmark Tavern on the Green, while fellow vocalist and Broadway powerhouse Linda Eder provided a special performance to entertain guests and committee members.
The Family Equality Council, whose mission is to ensure equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered families by building community, advocating for acceptance and advancing social justice for all families, was founded in 1979 by a group of gay fathers, eventually expanding to encompass any member of the LGBT community.
In additional to honoring Aiken, A Night At The Tavern also presented Terry Boggis, director of Center Kids at New York’s LGBT Center with the Hostetter-Habib Family Award, raised funds through a silent auction and gave advocates a chance to mix and mingle for a worthy cause.
