AIDS/LifeCycle Drag Benefit

May-4-Drag-FundraiserWhat: AIDS/LifeCycle Drag Benefit to support Oakley’s friend Greg’s first ride!

When: Monday, May 4. Drinks and greet 8-10 p.m. Show starts at 10 p.m.

Where: Hamburger Mary’s – 740 E. Broadway Avenue, Long Beach.

How much: $10 cover charge donation

My good friend Greg, a Lakewood native and Long Beach resident, is participating in his very first AIDS/LifeCycle, a fully supported, 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, May 31 – June 6, 2009.  That’s 545 miles, y’all!

THAT is dedication that we can–and should–get behind!

On Monday, May 4th, Greg is dusting off the frock and, well, dragging out of the closet his alter-ego ANGELICA STRANGE DEVILLE to the stage to raise money for his AIDS/LifeCycle ride.  $10 cover donation with raffles and games and a LOT of fun.  Cocktails from 8-10 p.m.  Show starts at 10 p.m.

Certainly, I will be there!

This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity…see it now or never!  (You may be better off with never, he said…)  Having had met Angelica before, I can guarantee you, this will be one heck of an evening!

To support Greg without going to the show, please make a TAX DEDUCITBLE donation to Greg.

AIDS/LifeCycle is co-produced by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and is designed to advance their shared interest to end the pandemic and human suffering caused by AIDS.

For those of you willing to brave the drive to Lancaster (2 hours north), the California Poppy Festival will be an awesome event to attend and photograph. It is also family friendly.

From the website:

Join us for two days of music music, art, food and fun celebrating the state flower of California and the appearance of poppies in the Antelope Valley! Warm breezes replace the winter chill, jubilant laughter fills the air, and poppies burst into bloom blanketing hillsides in a sea of orange. The California Poppy Festival kicks off spring in the Antelope Valley with a glorious array of celebrated performers, unrivaled events, and mouth-watering delicacies designed to delight, enchant, and amuse people of all ages.

Another option to is do a day hike at the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve.

Let me know your preference in the comments.

Carpooling is recommended.
