Hillary Clinton's Busy Day in NYC: A King and Two Award Galas

Prior to attending two galas honoring her this evening,  Hillary Clinton met with King Mohammed VI in New York City today.

Then she was off to not one but two overlapping events.  Women for Women celebrated their 20th anniversary at the Museum of Natural History on Central Park West and honored her with their 2013 Champion of Peace Award.  The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation presented her with their Global Impact Award at their event at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square.
Here are some twitpics from the AIDS event.  Diane Sawyer presented the award.  I will add pictures should I find more.

This is nice.

Hillary Clinton and Diane Sawyer step down memory lane

Hillary Clinton and Diane Sawyer took a trip down memory lane Tuesday night at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation’s 25th-anniversary gala. Sawyer — who was presenting the former secretary of state with the Global Impact Award — recalled her time with Clinton at Wellesley College, when they were “young girls with coke-bottle glasses.” “One of us spent a lot of time having an identity crisis — that was me,” Sawyer told the crowd at the Best Buy Theater. “I went to law school and didn’t graduate, and ended up doing the weather in tight skirts and lamentably pointy bras.” Clinton was quick to set the record straight, saying, “Everything Diane said is inaccurate.” The evening also featured dramatic readings from Glaser’s memoir by Mary Steenburgen and former “ER” stars Julianna Margulies and Gloria Reuben, who we’re told became visibly emotional while reading the excerpt. Other guests in the house included Nigel Barker, Willow Bay and Miss Universe Gabriela Isler.
