About "Family Builders by Adoption"

CCCYO Staff Flowchart

On June 3, 2008, CCCYO hosted its annual Red House Fundraiser. Last year's "Red House" event was notable due to the fact that the featured entertainer was transvestite and same-sex "marriage" activist "Donna Sachet." This year's event is especially interesting because of its proximity to the recent California Supreme Court's decision on same-sex "marriage." Honorary Committee members of this year's event (and their reactions to the court's decision) include:

Mayor Gavin Newsom: "What a day in San Francisco! What a day for equality! Who among us was prepared for this extraordinary moment and extraordinary time," said Newsom, who cut short a trip to Washington, D.C. to return home Wednesday night to await the court's ruling. "I can't tell you how proud I am to be a San Franciscan." "It's an affirmation of the gay and lesbian community and an extraordinary day for all of us as Americans," Newsom told the Bay Area Reporter in a Thursday phone call.

Another Honorary Committee Member is, once again, transvestite entertainer "Donna Sachet," who is a Board Member of the Equality California Institute. "Equality California" was one of those represented in the case before the supreme court. He is pictured above with CCCYO Treasurer Nanette Lee Miller.
