The Femme Fever Gala Ball will be held on April 18, 2009 from 8pm to 12am & has been compared to a prom-like event. Betty & I have been to a few Femme Fever events & Karen hosts a great party.
All the info you need is below the break.
In evening attire (gowns, dresses, nice slacks preferred but not required) you step into a private ballroom surrounded by friendly faces, stunning decor, cash bar and fantastic music by the beautiful and fun FemmeFever DJLisa / Performances / TG Fashion Show Promised to entertain /Professional Photographer . A full course dinner (of your choice) will be served to you, white glove service – and you will have a choice as to what you order. This is a Transgender Event that brings significant others, lady and gentlemen admirers and friends of the trans community as well as over 100 transgender gals in unison for an evening of elegance that is filled with laughter, dancing and an enjoyable show featuring some top entertainment TBA, along with give-aways for all.. All who are friendly to us are welcome to join us. After midnight, the party continues in the hotel’s friendly lounge, with our own DJ spinning dance music for all. Last years Gala Ball had 132 attendees! Don’t miss it!
Although there will be no assigned seating, you may – if you wish – get there at any time before the Ball and “save” seats at a table to sit with friends (just place a note) . Anywhere you sit – you will make friends though! There will be a few “couples” tables reserved for those who wish to sit with other couples and these tables will be clearly marked. IF you would like to reserve a TABLE for your group, you may do so by contacting me when or after you pay for your tickets. The FemmFever Gala Ball will be held in the Private & Lovely Crystal Ballroom (you will see a sign upon entering the hotel) which is directly right off the door into the hotel. This event begins at 8:00 p.m. and ends at 12:00 a.m. at which time you are welcome to “party on” with the others in the hotel’s friendly (mixed) lounge with DJ Lisa at no charge of course. We have had this event at this LGBT Friendly hotel in the past and the attendees were happy with everything about the event and the hotel. This hotel offers free shuttle service from the LIRR and the Islip Airport. Let them you your needs and they will give you all information needed to make your trip easy. There is also a rental car desk for those traveling in who are staying a while.
For those of you staying over at the hotel (or near enough to come back in the morning), the dining area has a breakfast/brunch on Sunday morning which many of the gals will be at. Why not make plans to meet up there? Announcements will also be made at the Ball regarding times the group can meet up if they like. Drab or Dressed – it is always nice to get together!
A block of rooms at the special rate of $89 is being held for us for the evening. When booking a room, it is best to call the hotel direct and be sure to tell them you are with the FemmeFever – Block # AJ3. Hotel website and phone: www.holidayinn.com/longislandny (631) 585-9500 – Be sure to book a room soon as there is limited availability at that special rate (remember, this is a Saturday evening and rates are normally higher). You may share a room and feel free to use the FemmeFever yahoo group to arrange that if you like. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/femmefever.
There will also be a section of our private ballroom curtained (near convenient in ballroom bathrooms) off for your use to change free of charge before and after the grand event if you like. Hangers and racks and a table will be there for your convenience as well.
Want to look perfect for this event? Professional makeovers by Karen and her trained assistant are available by making an appointment. These makeovers will be done in Karen’s suite at the Holiday Inn itself at a fee of $65 for makeup application; wig style, false lashes included if you like..
Our DJ Lisa (a trans gal herself) will be spinning great music for us throughout. I hope you will all use that dance floor! Nervous about the walk from room to ballroom (if not using the ballroom changing area) ? One of the gals will pick you up at your room and walk you down if you like!
Professional photographer (who you may know from previous Ball) Efrain aka “Gonzo” will have a table set up at the Ball and be available to take professional portrait pictures of individuals or groups. He is trustworthy, sweet and discreet and will give you your photos right then and there at an extremely fair cost.
