A Message from the Brujos Team President Regarding the Upcoming Drag Show:
We are 11 days away from the drag show. This is our biggest fundraiser for the team and given that we did not host a tournament last year (our other fundraiser) we desperately need to make sure that this event is successful.
Please keep in mind that the money we collect at this event goes to:
And other miscellaneous items that we all benefit from bu being a member of this club
We have 8 people signed up and I believe in those 7 people, they are not 100% certain they will make it to the event. I need at least 10 to make it worth while for the real drag queens that are volunteering their time and cosmetics.
This means we are short a lot of performers. and with performers there is little reason to have the show or that we will be getting enough money to cover the costs that we have already put into the show.
If you are on the fence and have concerns about participating, please let me know or someone that has been in the show before and maybe we can work through them and find resolution
I thank you all for everything that you do for the club and I appreciate your assistance in making this event a success. If you would like to volunteer please fill out the spreadsheet:
