Mass. Gay Group
Raises $34K to Fight Prop. 8

Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders' summer fund-raiser in Provincetown, Mass., raised $34,000 for the fight against California's Proposition 8, a November ballot initiative that would amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage in the state.

GLAD donor Scott Davenport chipped in $15,000 and urged others to step up to the plate. "When we protected the freedom to marry in Massachusetts, we did so with the help of folks from many other states -- now it's our turn to help in California," he said according to a press release. The money will be sent to Equality for All, which is working against the proposition.

The July 26 event, featuring celebrity auctioneer Kate Clinton, raised more than $100,000 for GLAD. (The Advocate)
