Lambert House benefit showcases community

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

On May 12, a capacity crowd showed up for a Lambert House benefit at Julia's on Broadway. The event, produced by Synergy Events, was a night supported by all aspects of the Seattle LGBT sphere. Business owners and openly Gay elected officials mingled with community activists and Lambert House youth and volunteers, proving that our community's generosity is alive and well.

Lambert House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and the largest provider in the Northwest of services for at-risk LGBT youth. Lambert House provides services for youth who have been abandoned by their families and those at risk for school failure, homelessness, chemical dependency, and HIV. Lambert House offers 22 programs including mentoring, support groups, case management, HIV prevention, and social and recreational opportunities for this underserved population.

The event kicked off with a welcome mixer, where guests got a chance to get to know one another before the Julia's on Broadway staff assisted in serving a buffet-style dinner and drinks. Seattle's celebrated DJ Kryspin entertained the crowd with music. The emcee for the night, Mark "Mom" Finley, flawlessly hosted the evening with the brand of comedy, cabaret, and character that has made Finley one of the city's best-know drag queens.

Performances throughout the night included Isaac Scott, Jetta, Sharon Husbenz, Aleksa Manila, Lady Chablis, and Mark "Mom" Finley.

During the intermission, Lambert House's Executive Director Ken Shulman thanked everyone for showing up to support the organization. Shulman explained to everyone the services that Lambert House offers and said he was moved to see so many past "Lambert House graduates" in the audience.

In a particularly moving part of the benefit, Shulman was joined on stage by four Lambert House youth: Squid, Erika, John, and Sonny. Each youth told the audience why Lambert House was important to them.

For William Pontius and Justin Giossi of Synergy Events, helping Lambert House was an honor. The organization's officials told SGN that they were proud to work with Lambert House because of all the services they offer LGBT youth. Synergy Events was responsible for getting all of the entertainers together and putting the successful event together from beginning to end.

Immediately following the Julia's on Broadway main benefit came the afterparty. Also produced by Synergy Events, "Dessert" was hosted by Lady Chablis and held at R Place, where the fundraising efforts continued.
