With 100 percent of the net proceeds benefiting lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women of South Florida, attendees can feel good that their a part of an organization and event that is changing the lives of South Florida’s LGBT Community.

In addition to this year’s record-breaking attendance, gross proceeds of the event also broke records at $230,000 raised.
