According to Greg In Hollywood, the stars helped Family Equality Council, a group dedicated to LGBT families, stage its most successful fundraiser yet.

Honored at the event were Brad Bredeweg and Peter Paige, creators of the ABC Family drama The Fosters, and activist Jennifer Tyrrell.

Tyrrell is the Ohio mother who in 2012 was ousted as a den leader of her son's Boy Scout troop because she is a lesbian. Tyrrell became an outspoken opponent of the Boy Scouts of America's (BSA) ban on openly gay scouts and leaders. On January 1, the BSA lifted its ban on gay scouts but openly gay adults remain banned from the program.

The show was hosted by Alec Mapa. Presenters included Glee creator Ryan Murphy, actress Lisa Kudrow and the cast of the ABC drama Scandal.
