Party hosts Ginger Harris, Karma Edwards, Kerry Boatwright and Billy Wells sure know how to put the “fun” in “fundraiser”: Last year’s event, an ’80s-themed wingding, raised more than $50,000 to support JASMYN’s programs and services. I have no doubt whatsoever this year’s “Feel The Fantasy” soirée will equally awesome and rad—just with different costumes.
Attendees are encourage to dress as their favorite fictional character (if only Oscar the Grouch were pink…) and join in the fun including cocktails, dancing, food trucks and general whimsy.
A “Kerry’s Pick” event if ever there were one!
FUN FACT: JASMYN (Jacksonville Area Sexual Minority Youth Network) has supported and empowered more than 25,000 LGBTQ young people since 1998.
BONUS FUN FACT: The shirt I wore to last year’s ’80s party was purchased in the late ’80s from Body Shop. It was the most expensive shirt I’ve ever bought (to this day!), and I had to put it on lay-away.
