Friday's Season of Concern event at Hydrate was wonderful!
We may not have packed the place with people, but several friends - - old and new - - came by to put a little money in the collection can for Season of Concern, load up on cocktails and trade tryptophan remedies.
And how can you have anything but great time with cutie-patootie Philip greeting you at the door!!
P.S. Philip added an uber-fabulous vest to this ensemble later in the evening. With all his costume changes, he was officially declared "Cher for the Night" which pissed off more than one drag queen, let me tell you!
Thanks to Philip for working the door.
No, he didn't "work the door" in the dirty sense. Although, he's so cute, I'm sure a few people wished he had.
The lovely Doug from over at I Get That A Lot and our mutual great friend, talented actress, singer and fundraiser extraordinaire Karen joined in the festivities.
Doug and Karen both attend every Season of Concern event. And if they're not attending an event for Season of Concern, that's usually because they produced it, sponsored it or are performing in it! They are the life-blood of our organization. Thank you, Karen and Doug, for all that you do for SOC!
And thank you to Dan for always being there to help out and to Hydrate's very own Eric for putting together this event for Season of Concern, organizing the alcohol sponsorship, creating all of the promotional materials, etc.
You're the best, Eric. I greatly appreciate all you do for SOC!
And last but not least, thanks to Catty Bitch for poking his head in for a hug and a "Hey, girl!" and thanks to ARE YOU THERE, BLOG? commenter Rob for attending and saying hello!
You Chicago boys need to know: Rob is a catch! Tall, dark, handsome, funny and very nice.
What am I saying? No, guys. You don't want Rob. Not at all. Leave him to me. Or I'll cut you!
