Thank you so much to everyone who attended our first Sacramento Red Dress Party! Over 300 of you turned it out in creatively inspired RED DRESS style to support HIV/AIDS education, prevention, and testing efforts and the Sacramento Gay & Lesbian Center.
We hope all our guests were impressed with our entertainment lineup as DJ Grind and Lee Decker shared the hottest beats of the year with the crowd, our aerialist Benn Mendoza spun and contorted himself in mid air, our drag queens Susie Belucci, Zamora Pussy, Kima Laru, and MonA lot MooRe who tore it up on stage, and our go-go boys and girls who kept the night red hot–thanks to them all for making it a night to remember.
We owe a huge thanks to TJ Bruce and the entire Badlands family for being an fantastic host and partner in producing the event this year. Thank you also to our volunteers, hosts, and staff from the Center who helped sell tickets, set up the event, and make magic happen on Saturday night.
Thanks to our sponsors without whom the night would not have been possible–Stoli, Hoppy Brewing Company, Paragary’s Restaurant Group, the Sacramento Kings, Made in the Shade Tent Rentals, Ryan Greenleaf Photography, Zocalo, Icing on the Cupcake, Rockstar, Bar West, TreyBCakes, Mr. Pickles Sandwiches, Outword Magazine, Badlands Night Club, the California Endowment, Empathy Therapy, the Rainbow Chamber of Commerce, and the Capital City AIDS Fund Play Safe Campaign–we salute you!
Finally, thank you SO MUCH to the entire RDP Team–Spencer Tschida, Josh Klein, Donny Vasquez, Ryan Greenleaf, George Raya, Ryan Brough, Ronnie Scharffer, Jonathan Cameron, and Brett Anderson–we did this together. And I can’t wait to see what you inspire for next year!
