New York's powerful LGBT advocates and allies congregated at Cipriani Wall Street to celebrate the city's LGBT Community Center. The night included fundraising, and honoring the work of PepsiCo, as a corporate ally, as well as The Calamus Foundation, an organization that The Center credits with helping support its facilities.
