The night was toasty as "Ashley Morgan Presents: Winter Get Away A Drag Revue" raised funds for Gerber/Hart Library and Archives at The Call Bar on January 20.
Ashley Morgan Presents delivers a theatrical drag revue every third Saturday of the month at The Call Bar, which always benefits a different local organization.
Each musical number in this show went with the winter getaway theme and the cast included: Ashley Morgan, Coco Sho-Nell, Juan M. Wett, Vivian Dejour and Shimmy LaRoux with some backup dancing from Noelle Simone and Cassandra Kendall.
This was Ashley Morgan Presents' second Gerber/Hart charity show. The benefit raised over $400 with donations at the door, raffle tickets and select drink purchases.
"I knew of them just being in the community, I figured so many people don't know the history of what any of us have gone through in the LGBT community and it's like here's a place curating it, holding onto it and saving it for future generations," said Ashley Morgan Presents Producer Ashley Morgan. "Then the fact that they are one of the largest places in the Midwest that people come to do all kinds of research projects and it's open to the public… this is a way to keep our community going, the way to keep our historyherstorygoing."
