In New York, Governor of that state, David Peterson and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will headline a $5000 per ticket fundraiser at the upper east side resident of Michael Recanati and Ira Statfeld, philanthropists:
"The money raised will be used for efforts to defeat Proposal 8 (sic), the ballot initiative that would amend the California constitution to recognize only marriages between heterosexual couples. Proposal 8 was put on the ballot in response to a decision in May by the California Supreme Court, which ordered the state to begin processing marriage licenses for same-sex couples...Advocates of same-sex marriage in New York have found a loyal supporter in Mr. Paterson, who directed all state agencies earlier this year to recognize marriages between homosexual couples that were performed outside the state."
