LGBTQ Atlanta has tons of different fundraisers, but the one at BJ Roosters on Saturday stood out from the pack.
The Disco Car Wash & Tea Dance took place in the parking lot of the popular Cheshire Bridge Road go-go bar. Rain was in the forecast, but the sun won the day, as did curious passersby checking out the BJs boys hard at work.
DJ Vicki Powell brought the beats, and the money raised went to More To Love, the LGBTQ group that supports various local and global charities.
