Gay group to raise funds for Grisanti

When State Sen. Mark J. Grisanti, R-Buffalo, made his historic vote in June to help legalize same sex marriage in New York State, speculation was rampant that he would receive widespread support from gay advocacy groups.

Indeed, Grisanti and three other GOP senators who voted for same sex marriage (James Alesi, Roy McDonald and Stephen Saland) will now benefit from a fundraiser at Manhattan's Union League Club on Oct. 13 in an event co-chaired by New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, a vocal supporter of the new marriage bill.

The Union League Club reception was first reported this week by a gay website called Towelroad.
