Drag ball raises thousands for Vermonters with AIDS

Posted: Updated:

More than 1,000 people turned out Saturday to raise awareness about AIDS.

The annual "Winter is a Drag Ball" took place at Higher Ground in South Burlington.

The event is hosted by the House of Lemay. One-hundred performers provided six hours of entertainment, including dancers, singers and a costume parade.

Money raised at the annual event benefits the Vermont People with AIDS Coalition.

"This is the 11th year the House of Lemay has produced the Winter is a Drag Ball," Bob Bolyard of the House of Lemay said before the party got started. "Over the last 10 years, we have raised over $100,000 for the Vermont people with AIDS Coalition. It's a good cause and we look to add probably $10,000 -$12,000 to that."

Organizers say it's the largest attended single event at Higher Ground each year.
