Signature Fundraising Events

Tantrums & Tiaras

Sunday, Feb. 15
Tantrums & Tiaras: Battle of the Bar Queens is an event like no other. What can you expect to see? A high-quality spoof of beauty pageants, of course, complete with a “talent” showcase. Local companies sponsor contestants, none of whom have any experience, as they compete to be crowned the next drag star. It's an evening of wigs, glitter and hilarity, all for a great cause! Join the fun and cheer for your favorites.
