At the end of last night’s Gentlemen’s Ball in New York City, emcee Andy Cohen said he felt like his life “is a waste.” After sitting in a room full of celebrity humanitarians, who can blame him?
For the seventh year, the GQ Gentlemen’s Ball saluted ten men, five movie stars and five non-celebs, whose commitment to their communities defines what it means to be a gentleman today.
In recognition of their efforts, Ambassador Awards were awarded to Andrew Garfield, for his support of Worldwide Orphans and Youth Mentoring Connection, Joshua Jackson, for his support of Oceana, Taylor Kitsch, for his support of the African Children’s Choir, George Lopez, for his involvement with the Lopez Foundation, and Zachary Quinto, for his support of The Trevor Project.
Awards were also given to the five non-celebrities who are working to help people in Congo and the US, and women across Africa, Sean Carasso, F.K. Day, Nick Ehrmann, Stephen Powell and Barrett Ward.
