BWW Photo Exclusive: Behind the Scenes of the PRISCILLA Fundraiser

On November 21st, 2010 cast members from Mirvish's Priscilla Queen of the Desert (led by J. Elaine Marcos) got together at Gladaman's Den in Toronto to raise money for Casey House, the first free-standing HIV/AIDS hospice in Canada.  The event featured a night of songs and stories, as well as an auction for items from the show.  The big ticket item of the night was tickets to the show, as well as a backstage meet and greet with various members of the Priscilla family. The winning bid was $2500 and also included cocktails with Nick Adams in his dressing room and a special serenade of Christmas Carols by the Divas of Priscilla!  Great fun and an even greater cause.

BWW is thrilled to bring you exclusive photos from the event, as well as a photo of B. James Bottoms who won the backstage meet and greet.
