Venice Beach finds its way to Manhattan for one night only, on the lavish rooftop of 230 Fifth Ave. GLAAD (The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), the nation's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy and anti-defamation organization, is pulling out all the stops for its "GLAAD Manhattan" event, sponsored by Bacardi and Delta along with corporate partners Barefoot Wines and Prudential.
The evening will feature the likes of many a media personality -- the lovable queen of mean, roast comic Lisa Lampinelli (left), 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski, Ugly Betty's mega-fabulous Michael Urie, and Real Housewives of New York Jill Zarin and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps.
But the guests are only a smidgen of the fun to be had -- there's caricature artists, balloon artists, psychics, and face painting. And, oh yeah, an Andrew Christian underwear show featuring Make Me a Supermodel's Ronnie Kroell. Yum.
There's also delicious food and music galore, a silent auction, and of course, plenty o' cocktails.
Tickets, which include three hours of an open bar, hors d'oeuvres, and a gift bag are $100 and are tax-deductible (Holler!). They can be purchased online by clicking here.
