The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood raised over $10,000 at its annual The Art of Drag fundraiser at Lips Fort Lauderdale on Thursday, October 28th, 2021.

Board Members John Mabry, Randy Gilbert and Elena Hershey, performed for the lively crowd alongside special guest Michael Dean as Cher. Funds were raised through ticket sales, a chance drawing and tips that were received during the engaging performances.

This was Mabry’s encore appearance and he wooed the crowd with an entertaining Donna Summer set. Gilbert and Hershey made their debut at this year’s event with crowd-pleasing performances too! Guests enjoyed a three-course dinner and drinks plus performances by the ladies of Lips and special friend to the Center, Michael Dean as Cher.

The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood presents contemporary gallery exhibitions and high-quality education programs for adults and children. The Center cultivates creativity and the support of the arts in our community through education, innovation and collaboration.
