BY PHIL TARLEY  |  Joe Dallesandro, the last surviving core member of Andy Warhol’s famous Factory shared his everlasting “15 minutes of fame” with the Trevor Project,  the nation’s leading crisis intervention and suicide prevention organization for  lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people. 

Dallesandro was guest of honor at the West Hollywood gala, art party and silent auction fundraiser held for the group and hosted at Artists Corner Gallery. The event was sponsored by Penthouse Spirits, West Hollywood Lifestyle, Fabrik and Artillery Magazines as well as the Tom of Finland Foundation.

“Amazing artists, beautiful models, great champagne and killer fierce photography. That’s what its all about,” said one attendee of the event.
