Rev. Elder Tony Freeman, Interim Senior Pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church of the Palm Beach Gardens (MCCPB), today reminded friends and supporters that that the largest faith-based community in Palm Beach County dedicated to serving the local LGBT community and its family members and friends, will be hosting its annual Rainbow Ball next week.
Scheduled for Saturday, April 6, at the Hilton Palm Beach Airport, this is MCCPB's largest annual fundraiser, a "fun-filled evening of dancing and dining, entertainment and socializing."
Under the banner of "Respect - Dignity - Equality... for all," this year's Rainbow Ball will be held in the Majestic Ballroom of the Airport Hilton in West Palm Beach. The theme of this year's event is DISCO FUSION, with the cocktail party starting at 6:30 pm. One of the evening's highlights will be the presentation of MCCPB's prestigious Ruby Slipper Award.
MCCPB's Rainbow Ball 2019 is being co-chaired by Michael McKeich and Carlos Toro. The cost to attend is $90 per person or $648 for a table of eight.
