The Gold & Glitter Gala benefit show on August 6th was a great success. We all know it take a village to put on a successful show and thanks are in order: We especially want to thank the GLOBE Bar & Kitchen for opening your doors and hosting our event.
To bar owners Scott and Mike, thank you for your ongoing commitment to our community and for your staff being so helpful in making it happen. In my 35 years of community activism I have rarely seen a bar work so hard to give back to the community. You have created a very special place in the Globe and sharing it as a location for fundraising is a huge bonus. Thank you gentlemen.
To our performers Nova Kaine, Lily longlegs, Arianna D. Spanic, Savannah SoReal and Madane Stina Rae that donated their time and talents to help us raise funds for the foundation. You rocked that stage and we so appreciate each of you.
To our MC Nova Kaine, my friend we have seen it all over our many years of community service, thank you for being there and for allowing me to co mc with you. It was a joy.
To Corey Fast, when we approached you about booking a show, you jumped into action and made it a reality and then offering items for the silent auction was a bonus. Thank you sir.
To Atomic Threads Boutique, thank you for the donations to the event, the silent auction gift card and for sharing Madame Stina Rae to grace our stage. Big hugs my friends.
To Greg Stripes for always being willing to support our community and our endeavors. Once again you did so much to make it a success, setting up, tearing down, counting money, working the silent auction and always stepping up and asking what can I do. Thank you never seems to be enough.
To JenuWine Beauté for making an online donation when your work schedule kept you from being in the show. You are a gift to our community and I am proud to know you.
Thanks to the combined efforts of all these named above we are proud to announce we raised 1000.00 for the Jose Sarria Foundation archives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
If you missed the show or the live broadcast, the recorded show is available at the link below. Check it out and donations are still accepted and very appreciated via the venmo on the screen or on our donation page. We appreciate your support.
For the love of Mama Jose…
