Prior to all of the events, I got a chance to speak with Cynthia "Cindy" Hussey, a friend of Sonja's. Cindy is the designer and founder of Velvet Eyewear (velveteyewear.com) and praised Sonja for her jovial and giving spirit. Cindy gifted some of the eye wear and I must say they are just FABULOUS!
Camille Evans, founder of INSPIRED IN NEW YORK introduced The Beekman Boys to present the certificate of honor to Sonja. They came up and thanked Sonja for her continued friendship and support she has shown them over the years before and after their marriage. She 'vowed' to be the foundation of many of their endeavors, including marriage equality.
Sonja accepted her certificate of honor and gave a truly touching speech. She is poised and humble. She is articulate and thankful. She is truly a GEM!
Take a look at her gracefulness and humbleness in the video below! Find out more at www.sonjamorgan.com!
