Honorees include: Jason Sheftell, a respected real estate correspondent who changed hearts and minds through his moving articles about Bailey House in The Daily News and whose award will be accepted by his mother, Karen Sheftell, in memory of her late son; longtime Bailey House supporter Betsy Lawrence for her extraordinary commitment to the success of Bailey House’s new Behavioral Health Center; Carver Federal Savings Bank, for helping Bailey House ensure the well-being of the East Harlem community through Bailey House’s nutrition assistance program; and State Senator Brad Hoylman, State Assembly Member Robert Rodriguez and VOCAL-NY for their tireless efforts to pass the 30% Rent Cap legislation for people living with HIV/AIDS.
The Gala will be hosted by Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon, stars of HGTV’s Selling New York and leaders in New York real estate with CORE. The storied Auction follows the Gala and remains one of the hottest parties in town. Featured Auction items include a Robert Mapplethorpe photograph; a luxurious stay in a beachside villa in Rio de Janeiro; tickets to the much-anticipated Cabaret, including a backstage meet-and-greet with actor Alan Cumming; an extraordinary vacation package to Switzerland courtesy of SWISS; a dream getaway to Villa Amor in Mexico and many more fashion, travel, art, home décor and entertainment items. Through generous sponsorships, celebrity support and phenomenal auction items, Bailey House has raised over $15M since its inaugural event in 1988. Lead sponsors of this year’s event include Pfizer, Giorgio Armani, Bingham McCutchen, and Mount Sinai Hospital. All proceeds benefit Bailey House programs that help transform the lives of low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS.
