The former president was unable to attend, but was represented by his daughter, Chelsea.
Peter Staley received the Larry Kramer Activism Award, and the GMHC co-founder was on hand to present the honor, as was former board member Phil Donahue with his wife Marlo Thomas.
The crowd of over 400 at the Highline Stages in the Meatpacking District on March 23 raised more than $700,000.
