The MASCARa Run!
The Mascara Run is a fund raising event, and this year marked the 18th annual running of the Drag Queens! The basic premise is that each runner, along with a pit crew, which helps them at each way-stop, runs from bar to bar, having a special cocktail while there, and adding to their costume. At one bar they'll put on their high heels, then dash (as best they can) to the next, where, after downing a drink, will put on their makeup, then to the next where they'll add jewelry and wig, and so on, until they are fully dressed, where they totter (at this point, all pretense at dashing is over) to the finish line. Huzzah! The runners raise money from sponsors, and this year NOCCA was the beneficiary of over $5200 raised for them. And this year, the Sisters helped out, from emceeing the event, to helping to make sure each runner made it to each bar. What a tremendous day, full of fun, Drag Queens, and Big Easy Sisters!
