Lips Chicago Presents A NIGHT OF STARS This August

Lips Chicago's first-ever charitable fundraiser in support of Connections for Abused Women and Their Children (CAWC).

Lips Chicago, the ultimate in drag dining, will present "A Night of Stars," its first-ever charitable fundraiser in support of Connections for Abused Women and Their Children (CAWC), on Thursday, August 18, at 7 p.m. The community is invited to come and cheer on their favorite community divas during this glittery and glamorous evening of celebrity tributes. Tickets are on sale, now.

"We are thrilled and grateful that Lips' has chosen Connections for Abused Women and Their Children as its first charitable beneficiary for 'A Night of Stars'," said Meg Tierney, associate board president for Connections for Abused Women and Their Children. "We invite our friends, families, sponsors and loyal supporters to join us for this incredible evening of tasty food, fun and philanthropy that will raise funds to end domestic violence and provide shelter, counseling and education for those who need it most."

This highly anticipated event, hosted by Lips' show hostess Ruff n' Stuff, will feature philanthropic community leaders Dr. Omer Ibrahim, Dennis Byrd and Jessica Kurkowski who will create their very own drag personas. They will get their glitz and glam celebrity looks on in front of a live audience for a worthy cause.

The evening will also feature a special appearance by the renowned Michael Dean as Cher. An in-demand entertainer who brings the magic of Cher to every performance, Michael Dean as Cher has established himself as a leading impersonator. He has performed around the country for charitable and corporate events, dinner shows, expos and pride parades. Also, he enjoyed a two-year engagement alongside an impressive roster of leading celebrity impersonators at Oscar's Cabaret in Palm Springs, California.

"Lips is proud to support the families of Chicago and the mission of Connections for Abused Women and Their Children," said Yvonne Lamé, Lips founder and co-owner. "Our venue is the perfect backdrop to celebrate any occasion and we are committed to giving back to the community. We anticipate that this will be the beneficial beginning to a lifelong partnership with area nonprofit organizations."
