Cabaret, Fun, Heartfelt, Fundraiser
Crooners joins in congratulating and celebrating Twin Cities’ Pride and the LGBTQ+ community on the 51st Anniversary of TC Pride with an All-Star Cabaret Show presented by Lori Dokken. Joining Lori as the MC/Host will be the AMAZING Erin Schwab along with LGBTQ+ local luminaries and allies. This cabaret event will be paired with a Go Fund Me opportunity (https://www.gofundme.com/f/wkcxx-the-say-gay-all-day-pride-cabaret) for supporters and guests to donate to The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project is an American nonprofit organization founded in 1998. Focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth, they offer a toll-free telephone number where confidential assistance is provided by trained counselors. The independent charity watchdog group – CharityWatch – ranks them as one of the top three LGBTQ+ charities in the nation. We sincerely hope you will join us for this insanely fun and sometimes incredibly poignant cabaret show. From Lori Dokken: A special thank you to all our allies and friends who have been walking with us, supporting us and fighting with us for our rights over these many decades.
