Our sold-out Drag Brunch took place at Gunk Haus restaurant in Clintondale, NY on Sunday, April 10, 2011. Over 75 guests enjoyed classic brunch entrees with a German twist while DJ John Martin from Superior Sounds provided upbeat music. Hudson Valley “girl about town” Trixie Starr served as our hostess, and JoJo Gerard reinterpreted classic songs from yesteryear. The Gunk Haus staff kept on their toes (in lederhosen and kilts, no less) and helped us raise approximately $1,000 for ARCS’ programs and services. Funds will go toward the Hudson Valley AIDS Walk on May 7th.

We are grateful to our volunteers and donors: Dirk and Elizabeth from Gunk Haus, Trixie Starr, JoJo Gerard, John Martin, Marquis Evans, Jana Fernandes, Ellen Maher, Eclectic Studios Hair Salon, the Hotel Sierra, Lydia Higginson, Verizon, Dick Wilde, BigGayHudsonValley.com, Billiam van Roestenberg, and everyone who attended this fantastic, fun event.
