The evening's presenters included Rosie O'Donnell, Cyndi Lauper, New York City council speaker Christine Quinn, and fashion designer Stan Herman. Other guests included Phil Donahue, Marlo Thomas, Judith Light, New York City comptroller William Thompson, and former New Jersey governor James McGreevey.
