Amy Scherzer's Diary: Equality Florida Gala
Equality Florida gala
You could feel the love and pride when Equality Florida gave Tampa police Chief Jane Castor its 2011 Voice for Equality award at Saturday's gala, presented by last year's winner, Linda Saul-Sena. (Castor gets the Oscar for Best Biceps.) Charlie Hounchell called up Gary Sasso to accept the first Corporate Voice award on behalf of Carlton Fields for its inclusive LGBT employee benefits.
Emcee Russell Rhodes of WTVT-Ch. 13 also gave former gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink a chance to thank her supporters. Tenth Concession played as 350 guests arrived at the Tampa Garden Club; Late Night Brass kept the energy high inside. Net proceeds topped $160,000.
