A TGIF Streaming and Trending


According to organizers of last month's The HAIR Affair co-fundraising event for Lucie's Place and The Living Affected Corporation netted $1,839.92. The proceeds were to be divided between the two entities with LA Corp also receiving a gift of $174.00 from tips from performers during the after show held at Miss Kitty's. "It was a good time and success," said Kevin Holmes of LA Corp. "I was glad to be apart of it and hope that we will consider doing it again in 2014." The evening included a local vendors presenting their crafts, fashion showcase on a catwalk with a special appearance from the show cast of Miss Kitty's in a "big hair" walk off. Each community based organization will use the proceeds to facilitate their respective programming. For the Lucie's Place concept spearheaded by Penelope Poppers (pictured), will use the funds to continue its capital building campaign to address homelessness among gay youth, meanwhile The Living Affected Corporation will use its portion to increase it community building programming  such as the impending Pinnacle Mountain Climb, HIV/AIDS education and general operating expenses.
