Ilene will be honoured at the upcoming
San Francisco Bay Area HRC Gala Dinner
on July 17th 2004.
We decided to put an ad in their program to congratulate Ilene (thanks to
all who donated).
Here is the ad we put into the program:
Check out some pictures from the event.
* Thanks to John Lake at HRC
* Thanks to Kary
* Thanks Val
And here's a brief report of the evening thanks to Val;
Ilene was there with her partner and her two adorable girls. Erin was there
with her boyfriend. Leisha, Kate and Erin each provided tributes to her
vision and her perseverance. It's obvious they all have tremendous respect
for what she has done. And her acceptance speech was gracious and
enthusiastic as well. It was a big night, mayor Gavin Newsom also received
the Equality award and gave a stirring speech on the rights and wrongs of
this administration and how we will win on the gay marriage fight.
