The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) held it’s annual Philadelphia Region Gala Dinner on Saturday. Philly native and HRC Vice President of Policy and Political Affairs Tom O’Donnell served as the speaker for the evening, welcoming Philly State Rep. Brian Sims as special guest. Other notable honorees and performers that evening included 30 Rock star Maulik Pancholy, who received the 2014 Visibility Award, out country singer Steve Grand, and ’90s pop diva Crystal Waters. The evening began with a cocktail party, and an impressive silent auction featuring everything from dinner at a Stephen Star restaurant to signed footballs and trips abroad. Then guests enjoyed dinner and the program in Millennium Hall, followed by an after-party at Voyeur.
