Last night in East Village, Kiehl’s Since 1851 kickstarted Gay Pride weekend at its¬†lagship location. Company president, Chris Salgardo and Ben Cohen served as co-hosts. Music and entertainment was provided by Kissette.


Kiehl’s made a generous donation to the Ben Cohen Standup Foundation. The foundation is an initiative, started by Cohen, that takes a stand against bullying. He believes that everyone deserves to be happy and to be loved and encourages you to step up and make a difference with him.


Many special guests made appearances at this party. Some of these included executive director of the Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI) Thomas Krever, Zachary Quinto, Taryn Manning, Jason Collins and Chris Frederick.


Kiehl’s was found over 160 years ago in New York’s East Village neighborhood, which it still calls home. It was founded as an old-world apothecary. They offer skin care for all ages and skin types. Whatever your preference may be; serums, moisturizers, or anti-aging creams, Kiehl’s has your fix.


This event raised $5,000 for the HMI, an institution focused on the empowerment, education and advocacy for LGBTQ youth. Kiehl’s focuses on three-pillar causes: HIV/AIDS research, environmental issues and children’s well-being. It’s no question why the brand supports the HMI.
