The Philadelphia Center 2017 Annual Auction Against AIDS

August 11, 2017

Come enjoy some music from the 70s as we bring to you local art, silent auction items, and contests that you will not want to miss. This year’s event includes performances by our local drag artists who will bring to life Cher, Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, The Weather Girls, and Donna Summer. We are excited to announce the return of Chi Chi DeVayne, a top-four finalist on last year’s RuPaul Drag Race.

Board president Lonnie McCray is the Auction Chair, working with Jacquelyn Barber as Artistic Director to bring STAYIN’ ALIVE: STAYIN’ HEALTHY, STAYIN’ STRONG to life. Attendees can expect sick entertainment with far out contests throughout the night. That Girl DJ will add to the scene, providing the grooviest music from the disco era.

During the silent auction, attendees can discover the talent of local artists and products and services of small businesses in our own community. Several raffles and contests ensure that everyone has a shot at some truly fabulous prizes. Clarke’s Jewelers will be on hand for their Wishing on a Star contest. “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” will be a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas. And chill out, of course, we will have Central Station’s “Shake your Booty” barrel of booze contest which is our popular barrel of wine, liquor, and beer. New this year will be the "Solid Gold" dance contest and "Sittin’ On the Dock of The Bay" in San Francisco for our Mercy Center.
