The outrageous beauty pageant spoof, “Best In Drag Show” – a benefit for Aid For AIDS in California – returns to The Orpheum Theatre on October 9, 2011.

The highly anticipated, annual fundraiser will be opened by comedienne Kathy Griffin and has a hilarious cast of drag contestants who compete in traditional beauty and talent categories. The legendary show always has a roster of celebrity judges – this year including Wayne Brady, Melanie Gritffith, Harry Hamlin, Vanessa Williams, Rita Wilson, Kim Coles, Dot Marie Jones, Sara Ramirez and Lisa Rinna – and the benefit has raised millions of dollars for Aid For AIDS, which was founded in 1983. Each year the show raises more than $250,000 in one night.

The fundraiser is produced by a large group of extremely dedicated and talented volunteers with a small staff from Alliance for Housing and Healing – the non-profit parent corporation of Aid For AIDS, executive producer of the show. This year, Aid For AIDS will be hosting a special VIP Reception for top-level sponsors. A celebrity red carpet and colorful pre-show cocktail party with costumed contestant “fans” begin at 6 PM. Curtain is 7 PM.
