Anyone who lives in San Diego, especially the Hillcrest area has probably met Ben (Benny) Cartwright, and for good reason. He as an activist, columnist and overall nice guy.

As Director of Community Outreach at the San Diego LGBT Community Center (The Center), Benny has helped countless people with support, encouragement or just a comforting shoulder to lean on.

And who can resist that infectious smile?

This week, Benny will celebrate his birthday. The official day is today, May 3, but his best friend Rick Cervantes is organizing a get-together this Friday at one of Benny’s favorite hangouts, Babycakes, on Fifth Avenue.

So if you know Benny, or want to get to know him, wish him a happy birthday today or say it in person this Friday at Babycakes.

San Diego Gay and Lesbian News and all of Hale Media would like to wish Benny the happiest of birthdays with many more to come.

"Happy Birthday Benny!" is on Friday, May 5 from 4 pm to 9 pm at Babycakes in Hillcrest. 

Babycakes is located at 3766 5th Ave, San Diego, California 92103
