Organizers of the breast cancer-battling event known as the Lipstick Lounge are promising to raise the bar on amazement this year, bringing the hottest cocktails, cosmetics, confections and couture to the Gallery of Amazing Things in Dania Beach.
“It’s part art gallery, part museum and part event venue,” says Tammy Gail, a breast cancer survivor and the founder of Glam-A-THON, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for local breast cancer patients through a partnership with Broward Health Foundation. “Once we toured the facility, they had us at hello.”
Besides decadent desserts, unique cocktails and upscale auction items, the sixth annual edition of the Lounge will feature psychic readings by Deborah Graham, who stars this fall in a reality show on TLC called Psychic Matchmaker. Also returning this year is the Big Boy’s Toy Chest, an “ultimate man cave” featuring charitable gaming from slot machines to blackjack tables. (Every guest will be staked with 1,000 chips, and winners will receive raffle tickets eligible for prizes).
“For the small price of a ticket, guests will be mesmerized with a one-of-a-kind night,” Gail says. Some might even say amazing.
