“AN EVENING WITH VICTOR VICTORIA” AT LIPS WAS A SMASHING HIT
IN SUPPORT OF NEIGHBORS 4 NEIGHBORS HURRICANE IRMA RELIEF EFFORTS
Neighbors 4 Neighbors benefitted from Lips’ “An Evening with Victor Victoria” raising $22,000 to help those affected by hurricane Irma. It was a night of many stars with the role reversal and stage debut of Dan Lindblade and Heiko Dobrikow with returning divas Alyssa Lovitt, Melissa Milroy and Susan Renneisen.
Guests of Lips’ “An Evening with Victor Victoria” enjoyed the ever popular female impersonation show, a delectable three-course meal with complimentary glasses of wine and Lips’ signature frozen cosmo cocktails. A limited number of VIP guests were treated to a champagne reception with a meet and greet with the alluring cast of Lips.
“This fundraiser is always a big hit, but this year it had more meaning with a focus on Hurricane Irma relief efforts,” said Lynne Cameron, Excutive Director at Neighbors 4 Neighbors. “We are grateful to Lips and our special guest stars for supporting the mission of Neighbors 4 Neighbors, which is celebrating its 25 years of connecting those who can help with those in need.”
Ticket sales directly benefited Neighbors 4 Neighbors, which was created in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, in partnership with WFOR Television (then WCIX). N4N has connected those in need with those who can help for the past 21 years. Using a combination of resource development, collaboration with service providers and the power of media, they empower our neighbors to use the talents, time and money they have to help others. In the process, they find, as do others, that “Helping Feels Good.”
“Lips is proud and honored to once again support the mission of Neighbors 4 Neighbors, which impacts so many in our community and beyond,” said Yvonne Lamé, Lips founder and co-owner. “Soon to be celebrating our 10th anniversary, we look forward to hosting this event year after year.”
