AIDS Walking: Apparently my little shoot from the hip comment about this year's AIDS Walk sponsored by AAF got some traction. I got an e-blast from Development chairperson, Brian, whom shared that he wanted to thank all supporters as well as announced that "a little over $10,000," has been raised. How much is a little over, I don't know? But, kudos to all those involved and I'm sure that organization will use the cash infusion wisely. Otherwise, the Foundation will also "play ball" with a co-ed tourney at the Rose City Baseball fields, 400 Rose Lane, North Little Rock, July 11-13. There's a $150.00 registration fee per team and applications can be downloaded at their website, http://www.araidsfoundation.org/ Don't' forget to tell them that you seen it here first!
Black Pride: Previously I've posted items about LRBP and it's upcoming Southern Comfort- Black Pride events. According to a reported schedule, but not listed on circulating flyers, the Taste the Rainbow pride pageant will be held July 11 at Club Good Times, 3910 Asher, starting around 11:30 p.m. Registration is required but no entry fee necessary. Also in BP news, Former Miss Gay America, Dominique Sanchez (pictured) will be among the featured July19 guest along with other unannounced national headliners. As a FYI, I noticed that the cover for the 10 p.m. Saturday show is $20.00. Apparently there are other satellite events that are being planned or happening around the weekend. As soon as if that news materializes I will put it in the mix. The host hotel, is LaQuinta (617 S. Broadway), ID Lubricants and IFBP are national sponsors. Need more info...it's available at 501.398.0307.
