Santa Fe, NM – A fundraiser for Southwest CARE Center, the 4th Annual Closet Ball will be held on Saturday, April 28th, 2012 at 7:30 at the Lodge at Santa Fe, 750 North St. Francis Drive. $10 open seating, purchased at the door only. The show begins at 8:00 pm. The event raises money to support medical needs of people living with HIV/AIDS in New Mexico.
For the 4th year in a row, producer Michael Kaplan presents a fabulous and unique show that has been a successful fundraiser for Southwest CARE Center. The Closet Ball consists of all male contestants, non professional drag queens, who go through a transformation from male to female within the course of the night. The evening begins with each man presenting himself to the audience and then within an hour, magically transforming into a beautiful (we hope) female persona complete with a performance with choreography and music of their choice. Guests of the event vote for their favorite contestant with their dollars. Collected votes go to the AID & Comfort Fund at Southwest CARE Center. Other entertainment throughout the evening consists of a performance by the dance troupe "Golden Ohm" from Albuquerque and other performers. There will be a cash bar and guaranteed surprises during the night. So come and get your drag on! That might be your neighbor (or your son) beneath the wig and makeup)
