The LGBTQ+ Center will host an Oscars Watch Party on Sunday, March 10 at The Abbey in downtown Orlando.

The event will feature a red carpet starting at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 7 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 with a special performance by Darcel Stevens.

Auction items include Universal Park Hopper tickets, VIP tickets to RIPTIDE 3, Hamburger Mary’s Brunch Packages, an iconic Miss Sammy costume, a Harmony Health Care package, and more.

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 period; 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 known for their heart-filled contributions to the local arts scene and for hosting annual Oscar watch parties at their private homes.

Tickets are $30 per person for general admission/limited seating or $200 for a table of four. Click HERE to purchase.
