A Boston Wedding Package with vows performed by the Mayor of Cambridge, MA, and a Hollywood (California) Entertainment Experience Package with tickets to watch a taping of the television show “Chelsea Lately” are among the dozens of unique silent auction items up for grabs at GLAAD’s Red Carpet Gala and Silent Auction Extravaganza November 7 in Fort Lauderdale.

 

More than 300 guests are expected at the posh Intracoastal Waterway home of John Evans and Steve Wozencraft, hosts for the fundraiser, which benefits the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). GLAAD is committed to building public support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality in Florida and across the country by promoting and ensuring fair, accurate and inclusive representation of LGBT people in the media and by fighting anti-LGBT defamation. Thanks to generous corporate partners, all proceeds from the event will directly benefit GLAAD’s work.

 

The November 7th event is scheduled from 7 to 11 pm, with a pre-event VIP party aboard a private yacht moored at the venue, 2716 Barcelona Drive, located off East Las Olas Boulevard at Seven Isles Drive, Fort Lauderdale. Alibi Catering is handling food and beverages at the event; Cartier Champagne and ABSOLUT Vodka have been donated for the guests.

 

Tickets to GLAAD’s Red Carpet Gala and Silent Auction Extravaganza are now $100 and VIP tickets are now $200. Other ticket options are available; to purchase tickets or for more information, visit GLAAD.org/RedCarpetSouthFlorida..

 

The Boston Wedding Package features Cartier wedding bands, vows performed by Denise Simmons, the openly-gay Mayor of Cambridge, Massachusetts who performed that state’s first legal same-sex marriages, as well as photography by Marilyn Humphries, the photographer of “Courting Equality,” the definitive photo album documenting the fight for gay marriage in Massachusetts, and accommodations at Boston’s prestigious Collonnade Hotel.

 

The Hollywood Experience package kicks off with two round-trip tickets to Los Angeles on Southwest Airlines and two nights at the Hotel Palomar Los Angeles. It includes four VIP tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood, plus a visit to the set of Fox Television’s hit series “24” and a “meet and greet” with stars from the show. It also offers four tickets to watch a taping of E! Enterainment’s “Chelsea Lately” show hosted by Chelsea Handler.

 

Travel packages to New York and San Francisco will also be offered as part of the silent auction, as will weekend packages at luxury south Florida hotels such as the W Fort Lauderdale, Westin Diplomat and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Unique gift options will also be available, including jewelry items and original movie posters from camp classics such as “The Gay Senorita” and “Two Latins from Manhattan.”

 

“We’re creating a memorable event so guests can have a great time and provide much-needed support to GLAAD,” said B. Rodney White of Hollywood, FL, who co-chairs GLAAD’s South Florida Leadership Council with Maria Lescano. “GLAAD’s work to bring fair and accurate stories of LGBT people and issues to Americans is needed today, especially in Florida.”
