Singer Ann Hampton Callaway (first pics ) wowed the crowd with her humor, voice and diva-dom at the Lesbian Community Cancer Project annual fall fundraiser, this year on land—at Speakeasy Supperclub.
LCCP Executive Director Jessica Halem thanked the many sponsors (including IBM, American Airlines, Subaru, Northern Trust and LaSalle banks) and individuals (including Nan Schaffer and Michael Leppen) who stepped forward to help the agency recover from a financial crisis earlier this year.
