On the surface the FAFSWAG BALL offers some glitzy appeal for people looking to escape their realities for an evening. The event now in it’s third year has always managed to deliver on something unique and surprising. The energy in the room is high octane and the talent on the floor is almost always turnt up to stun, shock, inspire, and amaze.
But the flip side of this is a lot of un-glamorous and unpaid hustle for our volunteer committee of ten who are passionate about making sure we’re able to offer our community the space to be free and express themselves. For us it’s all about the lighting and creating a quality event that lets those of our community that want to SHINE, the right shadows and mood lighting to be able to blow away our judges and audience when they bring their unique creations to the floor and slay our categories to death…
Unfortunately in the real world that means money. This year we wanted to see if we could lean on our community and supporters to help us out. We have some boring costs involved that we need help with. In the real world they call this scabbing , but here at fafswag we like to call it fundraising.
So please, check out our PLEDGE ME campaign and show some love for our growing Poly Vogue community. There are some pretty great rewards up for grabs and we the team would be grateful for the chance to pay for some decent lighting for our performers.
