The LGBTQ+ Center will host an Oscars Watch Party on Sunday, March 12 at the Winter Park Events Center and everyone is invited.

The event will feature a red carpet starting at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 8 p.m. and will feature raffles, a silent auction, a DJ, and more, and will be hosted by local drag queens Ginger Minj and Gidget Galore.

Proceeds for the event will benefit the Singhaus Scholarship Fund, which provides funding for local LGBTQ talent seeking a career in the performing arts, specifically in performance, technical, creative, and costume design.

The fund was launched in May 2022 to honor three major arts supporters who all passed away from unrelated incidences in the same relatively short span of time; Marcy, Sam, and Steve Singhaus. Marcy was an award-winning costume designer who created looks for the likes of RuPaul’s Drag Race alums Ginger Minj and Tyra Sanchez, and the beloved Sam Singhaus, (Steve’s brother), graced countless stages, bartops, and fundraisers as his alter-ego, Miss Sammy, and even performed on Broadway in the original cast of “La Cage aux Folles.” All three were famous for their contributions to the local arts scene and for hosting annual Oscar watch parties.

Tickets are $45 per person or $350 for a table of eight. If you use the code “SAMMY” you can save $20 on your individual tickets. Click HERE to purchase yours.
