The Vancouver Pride season is almost upon us, to kick-off the festivities the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver is hosting the first Lady In Red Ball, on July 27th.
Benefitting the Dr Peter AIDS Foundation, the inaugural Lady In Red Ball will be hosted Vancouver’s Next Drag Superstar 2017 winner, Kendall Gender. The host will also delight attendees with a special performance with Vancouver’s drag troupe, The Brat Pack. Taking place at The Roof (15th Floor) of the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, guests will relive the heydays of the dinner & dances of the famed hot spot, the Panorama Roof. Instead of the Dal Richards Orchestra performances of old, additional entertainment will come as Ballet BC leaps to the floor showcasing a specially choreographed work celebrating Pride. Vancouver country music artist Patrick Masse will perform live, and a DJ will keep the party going into the evening. Perhaps the Hotel Vancouver’s infamous ghost of the lady in red will also make an appearance to dance the night way?
Guests will find light reception fare at food stations around The Roof, tickets also include three beverages from the bar, additional drinks are available for purchase. Partial proceeds from The Lady In Red Ball support The Dr Peter AIDS Foundation. The Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation raises funds to support innovative health care at the Dr. Peter Centre in Metro Vancouver. The Centre is British Columbia’s only HIV/AIDS Day Health Program and 24-hour specialized nursing care Residence.
The Lady In Red Ball takes place from 7pm – 10pm on July 27, 2018. Guests must be 19+years of age to attend. Tickets are just $99 per person and available for purchase online at Eventbrite (fees extra)
