CORCORAN’S Robby Browne and Chris Kann co-hosted the 31st Annual Toys Party for Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) at Pier 60.
Thousands of toys were collected during the event, which benefits LGBT elders, as well as children.
Before the night was over, more than $300,000 was donated on behalf of LGBT elders.
Special attendees included LGBT icons Levi Jackman Foster, Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis, Andy Cohen and longtime SAGE supporter Whoopi Goldberg.
Addressing partygoers, Goldberg emphasized the importance of intergenerational dialogue through SAGE Table, SAGE’s national program set to launch in May 2017.
“This is not a fundraiser, this is a friendraiser,” said Goldberg about the new program.
“SAGE is one of the most important organizations that I am aware of, and I’m proud to be a part of it. Everybody forgets when they’re younger that getting old is just around the corner. So, you have to make sure you’re looking out for those who have come before you, and appreciate what was done. On May 18, we’ll get to know each other.”
