Jean (CEO, Los Angeles LGBT Center) and Pauley Perrette (NCIS) spoke at the sold-out event, which included red carpet arrivals, a cocktail reception, seated dinner, silent & live auctions and more. Guests celebrated the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s mission of building a world in which LGBT people can be healthy, equal and complete members of society. James Blunt performed his popular song You’re Beautiful among other hits. Event co-chair Brent Bolthouse revealed that the event would be Linda Perry’s last year co-chairing An Evening with Women; an event that she developed in 2009. The crowd gave Linda a huge applause thanking her for her years of service. Macy Gray closed out the night performing her hits I Try and Beauty In The World along with unique covers of Radiohead’s Creep and Pretenders’ Brass In Pocket.
