No … 426 of them and we've just reached the half-way point. We could not have done it without the help and support of so many businesses and friends, thanks to all of you for being there! The 'Bear'on and 'Bear'o-ness, along with all our 'lil cubbies,' have not been hibernating this winter and with the spring thaw coming, be sure to know that even more events are on the way! Sierra (the real) Montana, Andy, and Yazmina have all also had incredible benefit shows this winter; each and every member of the regal family works hard to assist in reaching our goals. There's still a lot to be done and the Barony has three great events for you to attend in the next few weeks. Each of them is different and all, I promise, will provide some great fun and entertainment.
The U.S.O. SHOW being held on Saturday, Feb. 22 also includes our Mr. & Miss Stars and Stripes Contest. Hosted by Baron II, Steve Nokes himself, the contest winners will receive prizes in excess of $250, contestants will be judged on talent, costume, and by how much money they raise during their performance. There's also a door prize, you get a chance to win just by being present! No cover charge! That's Saturday the 22nd at the Annex 3, 3160 N. Clark. Show time is 10 p.m. sharp; contestants should be on hand to sign up at 9:30.
Friday, March 7 brings us our First Barony Slave Auction at Cellblock, 3702 N. Halsted. Members of the Barony are auctioning off their 'services' and there are other items as well donated by the many friends of the Barony.
The 'divas' and 'guyz' of the Barony will grace the floorboards of the Baton Show Lounge at the end of March with Dragocious 2003—Something to Dance About.
Last year's show was a sell-out and raised more than $3,500! A 10 p.m. show has been added this year to accommodate the sell-out; it's one of those evenings not to be missed.
While out and about I've been asked a lot about the 'other Montana thing' comment from the last column.
Let's just put it to rest, it's where it belongs, enough said.
