Oliver Reid, Glamour publisher William Wackermann, Bumble and bumble president Peter Lichtenthal and, yes, GMHC founder Larry Kramer enjoyed a video greeting by Ellen Degeneres and a sit-down dinner prepared by renowned Butter chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli, and helped cheer on honorees the Rudin Family, Gill Foundation president Timothy Sweeney and Duane Reade, the corporate sponsor for AIDS Walk New York (which benefits GMHC).
