Unicorn President Gregory Fried Crowned 'Queen of the Night' at Exciting "Halloween Masquerade" LIPS Caberet
Fort Lauderdale FL – October 29th, 2017 – The Unicorn Children’s Foundation held its wildly popular Halloween-themed cabaret role reversal drag show at LIPS in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and is pleased to announce that it was a RESOUNDING SUCCESS! More than $36,000 was raised to help kids with special needs excel in our community.
While guests enjoyed their repast and drinks, Event Chairman Max Tucci along with Unicorn’s President Gregory Fried (Gregory’s Fine Jewelry), Eddie Dominguez (LA Sweetz), Kurtis Lutz (MODA Salon) and Derek Morrell (Ouzo Bay Restaurant) transformed into dazzling Divas and absolutely stunned the audience with individual performances that were also interspersed with acts by the talented and amazing LIPS Divas. In addition, guests themselves were encouraged to dress in costume befitting the Halloween holiday, and actively participated in a costume contest for amazing prizes. Unicorn’s very own longtime supporter and benefactor Madeline Hillsberg took first place with her fantastic Spider Man costume.
Gregory Fried, Unicorn’s very own President, ended up with the most votes and was not only bestowed the title of ‘Queen of the Night’, but was also awarded the uniquely beautiful and coveted Stiletto Trophy, now making him the two year running champion. Proceeds from “Halloween Masquerade” will help expand opportunities for neuro-diverse youth with special needs like Autism, Dyslexia and other learning disorders.
“We are so thrilled with the great response to this fun event”, said Sharon Alexander, Chief Executive Officer of the Unicorn Children’s Foundation. “We could not be more proud of our special guest divas with big hearts, generous sponsors and the one and only Lips, all of which helped make this such a success.”
