(SAN DIEGO) More than 700 people gathered last night at the Birch North Park Theatre for the first annual Battle of the Bar Queens.
The over the top production raised over $40,000 for its benefactor, Mama’s Kitchen.
“The night was a great success,” said Alberto Cortez, Executive Director, Mama’s Kitchen. “The crowd was very eager and engaged and there were many wonderful situations throughout the evening.
“The show reflected an amazing commitment and amount of work from the contestants and the community that put it together – they did an amazing job. I am really grateful to the community; it was really a lovely show of generosity and support for people suffering from AIDS and an impressive show of commitment from the GLBT community for Mama’s Kitchen mission.”
Mama’s Kitchen will be utilizing the funds to purchase food and meal containers. They expect the funds will provide for at least 14,185 meals.
