Miss Ginger and Boy Ginger are TRULY humbled by the outpouring of support from their friends for tonight's RoundUP show! This first time ever event raised $5,000 for Legacy Community Health Services, and corporate matches will bring the total to $10,000!! From a Drag Show!
Miss Ginger is truly touched, and so honored to have a group of friends as loving, giving, and generous as you! In these tough economic times, Miss G feels it's more important than ever for those of us who have jobs to support Legacy, so healthcare will be available to those less fortunate. Nothing feels better than good karma, except perhaps knowing that your friends all "pay it forward" as well! Karma breeds karma, and it's great to be in such good company!
I want to thank everyone who mailed in checks, came to the show and tipped, or bought tables to support the cause! I especially want to thank the performers, those tireless souls who give their weekends, every weekend, raising money, one dollar at a time, to ensure people from all walks of life can recieve the dignified healthcare that everyone deserves!
here's a shout out to Marcia Mink Anne Gill and JP Gill, former Mint Juleps and the reigning monarchs of ERSICSS who took time from their busy realm to support 'lil ole Miss Ginger! Falcon and Scott, who always come up to support the cause! Aaron Patterson, the reigning Mr. Mint Julep, and Keith Nappier, co-founder of the Mint Julep Organization! Vixen Deveraux Morehead and Mona Lott, candidates for Miss Mint Julep 2009; Susan Hayes, candidate for Ms. Mint Julep 2009; and Alex Stroud, candidate for Mr. Mint Julep 2009. Oh, and I almost forgot the new candidate who announced at tonight's show, Gear Shift who will challenge Alex for the title of Mr. MJ!
I also have to thank my co-emcee, Holly Redwood! We should do a sister act, girl!
Miss Ginger also wants to thank the board and staff at Legacy for all they do to support our community! Working in the non-profit world is tough, because you never walk away from the need, and the desire to help! Just like the performers, they are out there every weekend, representing Legacy and interacting with the community- "off the clock", so to speak! You guys are there for the community every bit at much as the performers are, and I for one want to publicly say "thanks!"
And finally, thanks to Sonna and her darling sweetie Denise! I wouldn't be doing this if it weren't for them, and they helped make Miss Ginger the gurl she is today! Love ya!
Love to all, and thanks again for your support!
