My 'gala' event
From one event to the next...
This evening I got to attend an HRC gala here in San Francisco. It was my first time at an HRC gala, and I was thrilled to be there. We (Microsoft) helped sponsor, and Sanjay Katyal, our NorCal diversity champion did a phenomenal job of getting us there, and sponsoring the event.
There were a lot of speakers including some who were readying their election campaign, and clearly steered away from the theme of the evening. Nevertheless, it was a fun event, all for some fantastic causes.
We donated an XBox 360 for a silent auction :
Kristin Chenoweth was given an equality award at the event :
It was fun to be at a non-geek event after a fun week at OSCON.
