On Monday, April 14, 2014 Sisters Sandra Musique, Rosetta Stone, KrisTall Mighty, Eunice X, Novice Sisters Gloria LeLuia, Tori D’Affair, Lida Christ and Rachel equality descended en masse up Club Cafe for Drag Bingo with Saint Constance the B9. This month’s beneficiary was The LGBT Asylum Support Task Force (http://www.lgbtasylum.org/) an amazing organization which has grown dear to us over the last few years. The crowd was slow to arrive, possibly due to RuPaul’s Drag Race starting an hour later, so Bingo started around 7:30pm. The Sisters had a lot of prizes to give out so the crowd really got whipped up. We also raffled off two pairs of tickets to the Men’s Event which was a big draw, especially once the Sisters hit the floor to relieve the patrons of the burden of an overly-stuffed wallet. We also had a guest, Whitney, who had been a former client of the beneficiary speak about her process and how important the program is. All of this created a very giving atmosphere and by the end of the night we had raised $1,208, raising our total Bingo fundraising to over $31,000!
I’d like to give a special thank you to the cast and crew of Book of Mormon for dropping in. And thanks to Pawsh for their donation of a $50 gift card.
