Wayland, MA (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
GayDestinationWeddings.com, part of the Destination Weddings Travel Group, attended Saturday’s Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Greater New York Gala as a National Corporate Partner and live auction donor. To support the fundraising efforts of the evening, GayDestinationWeddings.com donated an all-inclusive getaway with round-trip airfare for two to Blue Diamond in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
The gala featured an address from US Attorney General Eric Holder, who announced plans for additional federal protections for same-sex couples, including full marriage benefits to: public safety personnel and police officers; couples involved in civil and criminal cases; and federal prisoners. The dinner also included speeches from Architectural Digest Editor-in-Chief Margaret Russell, celebrity interior designer Nate Berkus and Tony Award winning actress Patti LuPone.
“We are committed to the HRC’s groundbreaking efforts to support full marriage equality and the rights of LGBT couples,” said Richard Calvert, Destination Weddings Travel Group President and CEO. “As an organization that celebrates marriage every day, our sponsorship to HRC supports our vision that all, and not just some couples, have a right to marry whom they choose.”
