Galas, Screenings, Auctions, and Theatre

New York Social Diary // Mar 31, 2014

Also last Thursday night, Bailey House held its Annual Gala and Auction, commemorating 31 years of providing cutting edge programs addressing homelessness and poverty among New York City’s most vulnerable citizens affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses.

Each year up to 800 philanthropists representing the arenas of fashion, entertainment, art and design, media and business come together to give back to Bailey House and amplify our efforts to transform the lives and opportunities of low-income New Yorkers.

At the Gala dinner, they honored the heroism of the individuals and organizations who help further Bailey House’s mission. Their storied auction follows the gala and remains one of the hottest parties in town.

Guests of Honor were Carver Federal Savings Bank (accepted by Michael T. Pugh, President and CEO) with the Rand Harlan Skolnick Corporate Social Responsibility Award; Betsy Lawrence who received the 2014 Arts and Legacy Award; Jason Sheftell (in memoriam) with the 2014 Real Estate Award, and State Senator Brad Hoylman, State Assembly Member Robert Rodriguez, and VOCAL-NY, with the 2014 Rodger McFarlane AIDS Warrior Award.

Hosts for the evening were Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon stars of HGTV’s Selling New York. Gala and Auction co-chairs were John Douglas Eason and Dan Scheffey. Art Committee co-chairs were Laura Krey and Elizabeth Sadoff, and the auctioneer was Toby Unik of Christie’s.
