When it comes to new twists on fundraising, AID Atlanta took it to Broadway on March 14, when a crowd gathered at Lips Atlanta for a theme night based on legendary stage characters and showtunes.
As the queens performed numbers from iconic shows including “Wicked,” “Annie” and “Dreamgirls,” guest servers and even some audience members got in on the act too with costumes from Broadway hits like “The Book of Mormon” and “Chicago.” The show was hosted by Edie Cheezburger, and the “celebrity” servers were Jeremiah Lawson, Krystee Manfold-Spencer, Jeff Paramore, and Shannon Bradley-May.
Since it was Lips, the entry to benefit AID Atlanta included dinner and the show, and VIPs even got a cocktail thrown in. To really make the evening special, raffle prizes were awarded.
