With an orchestra, fashion show, silent auction and plenty of catering and cocktails, the gay-run Thriving Children hosted yet another successful gala that raised funds for Lost N Found Youth.
The upscale 8th Annual Thriving Children Gala on Friday at the Atlanta History Center attracted a crowd dressed to its best to support Lost N Found, which cares for homeless LGBT youth.
The event is the creation of award-winning gay hair designer Steve Hightower, who hosted the fashion show. D'anne Cagle Heckert served as celebrity emcee and Derek Barry, who competed on Season 8 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” delivered a Britney Spears impersonation.
Last year’s event also benefited Lost N Found.
