On Thursday, March 28th at Pier 60, Bailey House held its 30th Anniversary Auction & Gala. Bailey House raised half a million dollars for its programs serving individuals, families and LGBT youth impacted by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. At the Gala Dinner, Bailey House honored actor Alan Cumming; Harlan Bratcher, President & CEO of A|X Armani Exchange; Bingham McCutchen LLP; and more than 30 legendary activists and advocates who, together with Bailey House, led NYC's earliest response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Alan Cumming said of Bailey House, “I love organizations that just do very basic things like [Bailey House], which gives people a roof over their head…There’s not so much bureaucracy and nebulousness; it’s really very basic, very primal
and very crucial.”

Television anchor and journalist Jane Pauley presided over a star-studded evening. Wendy Williams, of The Wendy Williams Show, presented Alan Cumming with his Arts & Legacy Award for his long history advocating on behalf of Bailey House clients.  Tom Viola of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS accepted the Rodger McFarlane AIDS Warrior Award on behalf of individuals representing Community Health Project, AIDS Treatment Data Network, and PWA Coalition of NY. Terrence Meck of the Palette Fund presented both Bingham McCutchen and Harlan Bratcher with the Rand Harlan Skolnick Corporate Responsibility Award, for their corporate philanthropy and their broad social consciousness.

The gala evening was followed by the renowned Bailey House Auction conducted by auctioneer George McNeely. George was joined on stage by Alan Cumming, who started off the evening by auctioning off tickets to his upcoming Broadway show Macbeth, a Liza Minnelli Meet & Greet package and an all-inclusive trip to the Edinburgh Summer Festivals donated by Edinburgh Festivals and Orbitz. The Live Auction also included such highlights as an all-expenses-paid trip to the Kentucky Derby, donated by Moët & Chandon; a week-long stay at a French chateau donated by Chris Herrmann and Joseph Lorino; portrait sittings by the artists Mark Beard and Andres Serrano; a trip to Gaia Hotel and Reserve in Costa Rica and a Custom Made Suit by the designer John Bartlett.  The silent auction featured more than 300 items, including artwork by Jimmy Ernst and Andre Kertesz; two business class tickets to Switzerland, including two 8-day first class rail passes, provided by  Swiss International Air Lines and Switzerland Tourism, as well as many more fashion, art, home décor and entertainment items by brands such as Room & Board, Marc Jacobs, Giorgio Armani, Prada, A|X Armani Exchange, Tiffany’s, Tourneau, Culture Object, Brooks Brothers, John Boone, Möbel Link, David Cafiero, Equinox, Rodial and many more.

Through generous sponsorships, celebrity support and phenomenal auction items, Bailey House has raised more than $15 million since its inaugural Auction. All proceeds from the event go directly to providing housing and supportive services for Bailey House clients – formerly homeless men, women, children and LGBT youth living with or impacted by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses.

In 1983, Bailey House led the response to the dual epidemics of AIDS and homelessness, helping scores of men and women survive to the treatment breakthroughs of the following decades. Today, Bailey House has 17 programs throughout NYC, as well as a food pantry and mental health clinic in upper Manhattan. Bailey House is recognized across the nation as the leader in housing, support and advocacy for individuals and families living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS and other chronic diseases.


Bailey House is especially grateful for the generous support received during SuperStorm Sandy.  Bailey-Holt House, Bailey House’s landmark housing facility in Greenwich Village, endured $1.9M in damages and, after months of being closed
for repairs, re-opened in February. 


Profile of Bailey House clients:


·         approximately 70% come from the poorest neighborhoods in New York City - East and Central Harlem in Manhattan, Hunts Point and Mott Haven in the Bronx, and Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn

·         90% are people of color

·         over 50% have other serious chronic conditions such as mental illness, addiction and viral hepatitis

·         34%  are women

·         2% are people of transgender experience

·         13% are under the age of 29

·         113 children reside with their mothers who are living with AIDS
