Drag queens from across the country came together Thursday for Atlanta legend Lily White, helping raise $7,260 to help White recover from a house fire and heart attack.

The drag marathon unfolded at Jungle under the watchful eye of Charlie Brown (photo), another drag legend and friend of White who emceed the show. The list of performers included Savannah Leigh, Bubba D. Licious, Phoenix, Ruby Redd and many more.

Brown organized the event with David magazine and Brushtrokes. She thanked the performers and supporters on Friday.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, TO ALL THE ENTERTAINERS, AND EVERYONE THAT TURNED OUT FOR LILY WHITES BENEFIT, WE RAISED $7,260. FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, THANK EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU, MAY GOD BLESS YA!

A fire destroyed White’s North Georgia home in February. On March 12, she suffered a heart attack. White wasn’t able to attend the benefit, but posted an emotional response to supporters on Thursday.
