Chicago, IL — We are thrilled to announce our upcoming fundraising event for Center on Addison, the social and residential center for LGBTQ seniors at Center on Halsted.

Join us to be dazzled by Red Hot Annie, Legend: Tiffany Carter, Jeez Loueez, Vaudezilla, Lilly Rascal, Vivi Valens, Hot Toddy, Jimmie Swagger, Terri Hudson, Stanley Anghell, and the Feather Beaus. Chicago's "Queen of Mischief and Mayhem," actor Molly Brennan, will MC the event, while shirtless, apron-wearing, sexy hotties serve hors d'oeuvres.
