It didn’t matter if you were naughty or nice: Santa and his elves were more than happy to greet everyone who attended the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance‘s Holiday Mixer on Monday, December 19. The event, which was held at Carmine’s Italian Restaurant, also served as a toy drive. Attendees were asked to donate new gifts for Toys 4 Kids, and if the huge table of presents was any indication, the event was a sweeping success.
Borgata’s new Vice President of Marketing Michael Woodside was on hand to welcome guests and announce that the resort would be home once again to Miss’d America 2017. The popular drag competition raises funds for the Greater AC GLBT Alliance’s philanthropy work and has been a seaside staple for years. Also at the holiday mixer was the newest Miss’d America, Mimi Imfurst, who helped raffle off several prizes for those in attendance.
Borgata is a proud member of the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance and looks forward to hosting their March mixer.
