Tonight in New York City -- A Celebration, A Feast, And a Reason to Tweet

Posted: Updated:

Tonight, in New York City, Gay Men's Health Crisis will celebrate with Savor; one of the top events of the year, but this year's event is going to be one for the ages and reason for all of us to celebrate with them.

First, GMHC is celebrating thirty years of serving those in New York City who are living with HIV/AIDS; providing critical services and support to literally tens of thousands of New Yorkers over the decades. That is reason enough for all of us to pause on an early spring Monday and say thank you to this remarkable group.

Next, tonight's event promises to be the best Savor ever and yes, there are still some tickets available should you be looking for a great night out. Hosted by celebrity chef Ted Allen of the Food Network's Chopped and featuring some remarkable chefs such as Peter Hoffman of Savoy, Stephen Lewandoski of Tribeca Grill, Francois Payard of Francois Payard Bakery and Carmen Quagliata of Union Square Cafe, over 500 guests are expected to descend on Gotham Hall tonight and enjoy a remarkable feast for a very good cause.

At tonight's event, for the first time GMHC will honor the inspiring work of Joan Tisch with the inaugural Judith Peabody Humanitarian Award. This award tonight honors not one but two of the most distinguished activists and philanthropists that have enriched GMHC over the past thirty years and all the men and women GMHC has served.
