Witti Repartee to Return to The Metropolitan Room with 'WHITE WITCHES AND EARTH MOTHERS' Benefit
Following on the heels of her latest fundraiser, Witti Repartee's 5th Annual 39th Birthday: There's No Cure Like Travel, New York City's hardest working philanthropist drag queen announces Witti Repartee's Broads and Bawds 4: White Witches and Earth Mothers, a benefit for Iris House at the legendary Metropolitan Room on January 7, 2016.
"Last year, the third time was the charm, but this year we're back with magic!" said Repartee when asked why there's a theme this year. "We wanted to focus the evening, make it sparkle and glimmer with the music of some very powerful women in music."
Co-hosted by recent New York City Transplant and winner of the most recent season of So You Thihnk You Can Drag, Vicky Boofont, the evening will feature performances by several old favorites, as well as a few new additions to Repartee's growing stable of girls and boys gone wild.
The 2017 Edition will feature performances by recording artist and Queen of the Bears Candy Samples, New York theatre and cabaret sensation Brian Charles Rooney, cabaret diva and MAC nominee Robin Kradles, former Queen of the Bag Ladies, Indianapolis's own Cassidy Fellows-Sommers, award winning Boston area rocker Kelly Davis Power, Boylesque favorite Suffra Gent and boylesque newcomer, Rocco Chanel, making his NYC debut.
Witti Repartee's Broads and Bawds 4 is produced under the aegis of Kaleidoscope Collaborations, which connects passionate artists and volunteers with progressive causes for the purpose of using their talents to raise awareness, build relationships and provide resources for non-profit organizations working to improve the lives of our neighbors and communities. All proceeds will benefit Iris House, a 24 year old organization founded to meet the needs of women and families impacted by HIV/AIDS in Harlem and the South Bronx.
A gorgeous piece of jewelry has been created and donated by MOANS Couture jewelry will be the focus of a progressive auction.
"Look," remarked Witti Repartee, "It's the dead of winter. 2016 has sucked on epic levels of suck, and we're not talking the good kind, we're talking like run down seedy suck. It's time to change all that and kick 2017 off to a better start!"
