GREENWICH, Conn. Looking for a different kind of Halloween party? The Greenwich-based Red Ribbon Foundation will hold its first Halloween Extravaganza, with a costume contest, dancing, brews and the highlight of the night Drag Queen Bingo.
Guests will taste Halloween-themed beers and food, take part in an outlandish original costume contest and be entertained by the antics and outrageous costumes of the Drag Queen Callers of the Imperial Court of New York . The organization is a not-for-profit established in 1986 to benefit the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community in the tri-state region.
The event, to be held Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich on Horseneck Lane, is open to the community and will benefit the Red Ribbon Foundation , founded in 1991 by a Greenwich couple whose child died of AIDS. The group raises funds through community events like the Halloween Extravaganza and awards grants to organizations that demonstrate results as well as promising ideas for preventing the spread of AIDS and caring for those with the disease.
Tickets are $150 per person and can be purchased online. Contact Nicole Hazard at 203-861-2775 for more information.
